I could contribute some rc-files for Swiss (i.e Latin1) setup with the
exclusion of Emacs-configuration, since I don't know enough Lisp.

Are there some Latin[2-8] collegues around to coordinate?
(There is somebody in the .cz domain (Czecho-Slovakia [I know, this
 spelling is wrong, but what is the right one?], Marek is in .pl (Poland),
 both Latin2 and somebody is in .il (Israel, Latin8). Lars is in .fi 
 as we all know, Latin3 ?), so Latin[5-7] are still missing, Latin5 
 is probably most important)

/dev/ttyS* should be easy as long as the applications do locking anyway and
everyone is using mgetty for the modem :)
