Anyway for example:


We handled it at a very granular geographic area for that site to avoid
any political upset and it hasn't seemed to cause any issues.

RE: the keyboard image... yep, it works like that today. It updates the
labels on the keys and the layout to reflect what you chose. You can
give it a whirl:

System > Preferences > Keyboard

then hit the 'Add' button on the layouts tab. It's not
easily-discoverable, but the keys even light up when you press them (you
have to click on the image first though.)

Thanks for the feedback Oku, you're really on top of things!
