Bug#287900: xlibs: Want us_intl without deadkeys

Package: xlibs
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-10
Severity: normal
Tags: l10n patch

In the Netherlands all (well probably > 99%) of the pc users have a US
international keyboard, they also do want to type the Euro character.
The pc/us(intl) and pc/us_intl (and pc/us(alt-intl) which is identical) layouts
give you that, but they also gives you very annoying deadkeys. At the moment
there is no easy way (other then editing one of these files oneself) to get a 
functional Euro key on a US-intl keyboard _without_ deadkeys.

I added a very small patch that adds this possibility. One can then use
layout = us_intl, variant = nodeadkeys to get such a layout.
