       XkbAllocGeomProps - Allocate geometry properties

       Status XkbAllocGeomProps	(XkbGeometryPtr	geom, int num_needed);

       - geom _summary_

       - num_needed

       Xkb  provides  a	number of functions to allocate	and free subcomponents
       of a keyboard geometry. Use these functions to create  or  modify  key-
       board  geometries.  Note	that these functions merely allocate space for
       the new element(s), and it is up	to you to fill in the  values  explic-
       itly  in	 your code. These allocation functions increase	sz_* but never
       touch num_* (unless there is an allocation failure, in which case  they
       reset  both  sz_* and num_* to zero). These functions return Success if
       they succeed, BadAlloc if they are not able to allocate space, or  Bad-
       Value if	a parameter is not as expected.

       XkbAllocGeomProps  allocates  space  for	num_needed properties and adds
       them to the specified geometry geom.  No	initialization of the  proper-
       ties  is	 done. A geometry property associates an arbitrary string with
       an equally arbitrary name. Geometry properties can be used  to  provide
       hints  to  programs  that display images	of keyboards, but they are not
       interpreted by Xkb. No other  geometry  structures  refer  to  geometry

       BadAlloc	      Unable to	allocate storage

       BadValue	      An argument is out of range
