This is the correct way to go, non xkeyboard-config layout databases need to
die, it's already horrible enough to specify a good xkb layout without needing
to rewrite it manually in another language.

(aside from the layouts not present outside xkeyboard-config, I wouldn't be
surprised if others that were synced in the past have not bitroted in kbd)
