I have "Meta is mapped to Left Win" selected in gnome-tweak-tool
which adds "altwin:left_meta_win" to xkb-options in gsettings and
causes xmodmap (via Xwayland) to report Meta_L as mapped to mod4.

That works fine in a traditional emacs and causes left Alt to be
recognised as an alt modified but with pgtk left Alt is being
treated as meta instead and I've been unable to find any way to
make it be recognised as alt.
