[PHP-DEV] mapping different keyboard layouts to make \ easier for non-English keyboard layouts?

Posted by Greg Beaver 
Hi,

Someone mentioned that it is possible to change keybindings so that it
is easier to do [] {} and \. The only post I've found that mentions
anything about this is

http://chneukirchen.org/blog/archive/2007/12/wie-man-die-macbook-tastatur-unter-leopard-entnervt.html

Are there other sources that could be cited in the documentation?

Thanks,
Greg

Uhh... You want to encourage people to change their keyboard layout/bindings?
Norwegian people have happily lived hitting altrgr+4 for $ for years
now, altgr+7 for {, altgr+8 [, altgr+9], altgr+0}...
\ is a the second char on the right from 0... no altgr combo...

But now you suddenly want to tell people how to change their
keybindings? Goto sleep man.

Wow, that's incredibly hostile, uncalled for and counter-productive.
You are attacking Greg for going out of his way to accomodate those
inconvenienced by their backslash combo? How backward is that? It
makes me question your motive here, what do you expect to achieve by
attacking him in such a way?

Heh, if Greg takes this as an attack then he seriously needs to get some sleep.
He has been working days and night on this stuff for weeks now, ontop
of his extremely busy schedule.. you don't think he deserves a sleep?

Someone should probably even silently unsubscribe him from the list
for couple of days just to make sure he doesn't waste his time on
responding to silly threads.
