IINM, the Mac layouts are those in
and these are non-PC105 (?), so they're not of much use for me ...

I could try to write a new one for that dir above, with pc105
mappings, but I don't know how to integrate a map in there in a way it
works. That is, IIRC, it's not enough to simply put a new map in
there, and then trying to activate it without having changed other
files that refer to, and know about this newly created map ... IIRC.

Best Regards
