Map two keys to same thing

I am trying to be able to write special (accented) characters in X, and this is what I did so far: I added "keycode 115 = Multi_key" to my ~/.Xmodmap file. So now accents work with the left Windows key. I want them to work with both keys, so I added "keycode 116 = Multi_key" to ~/.Xmodmap file too. Now only the right Windows key works! How can I have both Windows keys mapped to the same thing?

I guess its not possible, but you can try:

keycode 115 = Meta_L
keycode 116 = Multi_key
