Make gkp pick up the default XKB settings.  Make gkp *show* it.  Make
gkp let the user return to the default settings.

This is closely related to locale settings.  GST should let the
administrator define the default locale settings, while there should be
a user app that allows the user to change languages and stuff.

Both gkp and (gnome-language-properties?) should have a "System" or
"Advanced" or "Default system settings" that pop up the appropriate
G-S-T frontend, and should have a conspicuous notice that changing
settings there won't change everyone else's settings.

While there's no need to merge them, they should be integrated, and take
each other into account.
