maping key combination?

I am trying to map key combinaton of (Super_L and Alt_L) as one physical key on my keyboard. For example when i press mapped key for those two it will behave as I pressed seperatly Super_L and Alt_L

using xmodmap doens't give me any clue in fact gives me more trubles. clearing and removing is indead possible with xmodmap but adding keycombo of those two is not possible. If i remove allready asigned modifier keys and add new ones as keycombo it is not acceptible.

what am i doing wrong, in fact is this possible at all?

Xmonad is a bit of a challenge to configure. The attached link has some good direction.

jv2112: I am not talking about tiling WM "xmonad", instead I am talking about X utility called "xmodmap" which is used to modify key's inside X itself
