Please.  Stop talking about xkit.  We have a library for this already,

well since the xorg devs decided to disable x zapping please suggest the right solution?

I said it.  Right there.  The bit about being a runtime XKB feature
already.

and you think an average user will know how to do this compared to installing rahuls dontzap package, and maybe just maybe when the next big change comes around in xorg you could let the community know beforehand instead of thinking your godlike

My godlike what?

All the other runtime XKB features are pretty well discoverable.
gnome-keyboard-properties, layouts, layout options.

- ajax
godlike as in taking votes on changes that will effect every xorg user in hidden polls, after all the discussions held previously and since were against the change, (apart for the few who hit keys aimlessly to see what happens or those who don't type to well) and not asking the community you are supposedly part of what they think, or even letting them know it was on the cards, anyway i've had enough of this i'll either patch the x source myself to put it back or live with regressing to using an xorg.conf, just to please the aforementioned few!
