We can certainly make xkeyboard-config smaller. About half its on-
footprint is localized strings, %langpack would help. The geometry
subdir is completely useless, and I'm reasonably sure the xml it
installs is really just source data and not anything apps or libs
All told that'd get xkeyboard-config down to a hair over 2M on disk.
Not saying that it is very useful, but I believe gkbd-keyboard-display
does use geometry information.
