Scanning through the list at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout shows that the vast
majority of 105 key keyboard layouts on this planet feature a tall,
non-rectangular Return key (i.e. spanning two rows). These keyboards
are therefore inaccurately represented by their current geometry
description in xkeyboard-config. This becomes apparent in applications
that rely on said geometry description, such as xkbprint and

The attached patch solves the problem by changing shape and position
of the Return key as well as "BKSL", which is moved to the lower left
of Return. A rectangular approximate outline of the Return key as
demanded by the XKB API documentation is included.
