 Hmm, sorry to be nitpicking, but the @ is the only character that is
actually printed on the keyboard ;)  None of the other special
characters are printed, and I know if even more heavier Mac users
regularly looking for where \ is hidden now again.

 But yes, you are right, it's a personal preference, and it's a PC
centric view. People coming from the Mac world of course should choose
macintosh as XkbModel.

 Hmm, speaking of keyboard layouts - does mac kernels have something
similar to the sysreq key that I am used from the PC world? If so,
which key sequence is that? 

 So long,
