My Pismo has a spanish keyboard and it works quite well, but I have 
slightly modified the keymaps to suit my taste (I also need to type 
french). Do you want them through private e-mail?

In my setup:
- mouse button 2 is Fn+Control,
- mouse button 3 is Fn+Alt,
- 3rd/4th characters of a key are accessed with the Alt key, because
there are 2 on the Pismo keyboard and I use them heavily. Newer Apple
laptops have only one Alt and two Apple keys. I shall see what I prefer
whenever I get a new laptop, but it going to be a while, but I suspect
that I shall remap the almost useless KP return key as an additional 
Alt Key.
- X now only messes up one key, the Keypad Equal that has the same
X keycode as one of the cursor keys. It is fixed upstream, but not
yet in the official distibution. I don't really care for _that_ key.
(It also mixes up some keys of the top row of my Apple keyboard,
F13-F15, the Volume Control and Eject keys).
