The more you answer, the more questions come up. ;-)

1. I could not find the location of the keyboard configuration that
gnome-keyboard-properties uses.
Doesn't gnome-keyboard-properties use as well (with XKB) the X server
files found at gnome-keyboard-properties?
2. When I add three keymaps with gnome-keyboard-properties, I am not
able to switch between them with a shortcut. With two it's fine.
3. Me wonders who manages localisation of 
It has been touched by 10 languages only, it's relatively unknown.
4. For a distro, how can you configure the default keyboard
map when the user chooses a specific locale?
5. I realised that Greek Polytonic does not work (dead keys do not produced
accented characters). Who should I bug on this?

Thanks in advance,
