Ifkeyboard input works correctly, then we are a big step forward...Christos

  The OLPC branch should be better, Bert said that when he set the
keyboard on XO to greek keyboard, normal character input works, but
key strokes with modifier keys (like Alt-) reports a greek character
with modifier bits, so when you would like to do Alt-b (for example)
it comes as Alt-beta and Squeak's command key mapping cannot handle

  The latest Windows VM (3.10) has better chance but may have the same

  Displaying Greek with TrueType...  I dropped the ball long time ago,
but now I'll try it to see what should be done.
