FWIW: I'm pretty sure (check  & ) that Nepali layouts were not part of the Maliit set I was asked to work on for the XO-4 touch keyboard layouts. It's been over a year ago, and a lot of things were going on, so my memory is a little rusty.
If the XO-4's in question do have the touch screen hardware support, creating a layout file is not too difficult (as long as the required fonts glyphs are already installed). That is a beauty of touch screen keyboards, they may not be as good as tactile keyboards, but you can have almost any language layout you want with no hardware changes.
