Thats the best I could find. If you could help me find better
references, I'll be grateful.

The format is more like Linux specific but yeah, currently we only
need this for Fedora and 'keyboard' command is required in the

IMO for now we shouldn't set the keyboard layout for windows since its
autodeteced (right?) from the language params that we do set. We also
have the API for apps to know if a param is used by a script or not
and if it is used, if its mandatory.

If we decide to do so in future, we could either figure a way to
translate from X layouts to locale names or add new param/API to
set/get locale and declare in windows scripts that they make use of
this param.
