Bug#623796: keyboard-configuration should be able to handle multiple keyboards configuration

Package: keyboard-configuration
Version: 1.73
Severity: wishlist
Tags: upstream

keyboard-configuration isn't currently able to handle multiple keyboards configuration. If two or more keyboards are present, the layout is the same for all of them.
It will be a great feature to declare a per keyboard layout. For example, an azerty keyboard will send fr keymap and a qwerty one will send us keymap, both at the same time, without the need to switch. In fact, it will be the behavior of what xorg did.

Do you think it's useful and possible ?
