Good perhaps. But what counts is what is in the libxklavier source.

H'm, yes, i had not thought about distributions having a different file. I had 
just thought that during KDE 3.5.x libxklavier would surely not change that

Well, I do not particularly like "translations" in KDE that are untranslatable 
because the library has already a translation. However for KDE 3.5.x, we have 
perhaps not much of an alternative, :-(
