Yes, we will implement that.
I alread had a look at a few major aspects of keyboard configuration. I
had to make some changes to the kernel keytables and worked hard to make
at least `bash' working again as usual.
Thus, I think we should form a small group of intrested people that are
willing to adapt the packages on their systems. After we have finished to
make all `major' packages work, we should send the necessary changes to
the different maintainers to get them incorporated. Otherwise, I suspect
we'll end up with lots of systems where a few programs are working and
others are not.
I will volunteer to coordinate this effort (unless someone else wants to
do this). I think it would be good to have 3-5 people intrested in this
topic. Best would be, if these people had different "keyboard layouts",
since we'll try to support all of them. I have a `german' keyboard.
So, everyone who's intrested in this please drop me some note.
(All major `decisions' will be reported to debian-devel before they will
be implemented so that everyone has a chance to object :-)
