Here's a slightly radical idea: what is it we're actually *gaining* by
trying to associate keyboard layouts with languages or locales or
anything else? If we're pretty sure we can get it right for most people
from the language selection screen - and I don't think we're doing too
bad a job of that - so most people won't need to visit the screen at
all, could we just present a big long list of all the layouts in
alphabetical order without any clever-clever language/locale
associations at all? It sure cuts the knot.
