Installed os802b3 from http://dev.laptop.org/~martin/8.2.2-betas/ and
it works a charm. Thanks for the RPM!

The deadkeys work and seem to make sense. I am not a French speaker
(or typist!) so it'd be great if some francophones could doublecheck
it. Of course, anyone playing with this will need to be looking here
for reference http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OLPC_Azerty_Keyboard as ours
is not quite a standard keyboard.

Using AZERTY in OFW is a bit odd because it ignores the non-ascii
keys, and azerty has lots of them in non-shifted non-alt key-codes.
Don't panic, your "2" key is not dead - press shift to get a "2" ;-)
