I would certainly not object to base the keyboard layout detection on your
code, but there are still still a few problems to sort out:
* only the Mac backend is able to report the current keyboard layout, all
other backends just return a null string.
* it would be necessary that the reported keyboard layout names are
consistent over all systems
Right I've have only a Linux development setup, I could also create one under
Windows, but I definitely don't have access to a Mac, so I would need some
help to integrate this feature.
