Could someone wikifi all this, please?
Sorry I cannot volunteer.

"Keyboards" page, or "G1G1 desired keyboard layouts", maybe better.

Might help other people get involved, and help carry the point across to 
OLPC G1G1 decision makers...

BTW, there's some keyboard layouts around, the one in the Bolivia wiki 
page has the current Spanish keyboard in the borrowed B4 I have been 
using, so they did make localized keyboards at some point, and of course 
they are doing so for Uruguay and Peru I should guess, and I wonder 
what's happening in Colombia, and especially Haiti...
