My argument is simple:

This keyboard is not a proposal or an incomplete project, it is being
manufactured by Large Format Computing, Inc.  This company sells a product
labeled as "Catalan keyboard" along with software to map keys for Microsoft

Since this hardware exists, Debian should support it.  Currently Debian users of
this keyboard have to patch their map files manualy, which is far from ideal.

I believe Jordi was missinformed, since he asserted that this keyboard doesn't
exist (which isn't true).  He also expressed concerns about dessign flaws, but I
don't want to start a discussion on these concerns:  they are irrelevant to the
user who bought one of these keyboards and can't use Debian with them.
