      How about discussing how it should work logically?

      Does an "iab" of "'a" to "joe" work with a keymap set? Yes, it does.

      Does an "imap" of "'a" to whatever work? No, it doesn't.

      Why this inconsistency? It serves no purpose.

      Can you make my attached 'test.vim' work with 'lmap' so that the single-quote works as most anyone would expect, e.g. the same, with and without a keymap? I could not.

      To clarify: I do not want to remap the keymap'ed keyboard. I want a "'" pressed on the normal keyboard, and the keymap'ed character ("w", on the Hebrew map) to have the same effect in an imap. I think that is an entirely normal thing to expect, e.g. consistent behavior.

      I never thought when I originally put the keymap functionality in vim (12 years ago?) that an insert map would be disabled just because a keymap was enabled.
