The core protocol allows only control over whether or not the entire keyboard or
individual keys should auto-repeat when held down. RepeatKeys is a boolean
control that extends this capability by adding control over the delay until a
key begins to repeat and the rate at which it repeats. RepeatKeys is coupled
with the core auto-repeat control: when RepeatKeys is enabled or disabled, the
core auto-repeat is enabled or disabled and vice versa.
Auto-repeating keys are controlled by two attributes. The first, timeout,
is the delay after the initial press of an auto-repeating key and the first
generated repeat event. The second, interval,
is the delay between all
subsequent generated repeat events. As with all boolean controls, configuring
the attributes that determine how the control operates does not automatically
enable the control as a whole.

- The XkbSetAutoRepeatRate function returns True normally.
- The XkbSetAutoRepeatRate function returns False if a compatible
version of the Xkb extension is not available in the server.
