Aquamacs provides a straightforward way of having my cake while eating it: I have the right alt modifier (the right option key) customized as “No modifier” while the left alt modifier is customized as Meta.  You have to dig around a little in the emacs customization buffers to find this, but it works fine.

Some keyboards do not have a right Option key. The only thing I have on my MBP JIS keyboard is a right Command and a right Shift (and a Fn) key.
