Well, the needs are slightly different if you need to type in large
amounts of foreign-language text, which was the case when I decided to
temporarily switch layouts. Then it's of course very convenient to just
have all the characters one keypress away, instead of having to compose
them with two keypresses or more. But otherwise I agree.
