Yes, the keyboard capplet is already pretty large, I'm trying to fix it
also with the international capplet, the gswitchit addition looks ugly
and I have an initial idea to try to improve it. If you like that
change, the keyboard capplet will be smaller and  I think we should put
there the keybindings capplet, it's a keyboard configuration preference
and IMHO it has no sense to have it as a separate dialog..

Jonathan will you be able to merge it before the freeze?

I will add gconf keys to store the preferences and gnome-session,
nautilus and gnome-panel (those are the main application that runs new
applications) will change the variable values automatically so new
applications will have the new preferences.

Of course, the running applications will not change their locale, I
don't think it's possible, it will apply only for new applications or
when you restart your session.
