  When I've asked for inclusion of new bepo (french dvorak) keyboard
layout in Xorg, 3 new dead letters was added, without problem. A
problem could arise if xkeyboard-config is delivered before Xorg's
xlib/xproto, but is it currently possible ?

  I could anyway wait a bit before to re-submit the xkeyboard-config's
patch, giving time for new xlib/xproto release ?
  Looking at Xorg's git, I thought that xkeyboard-config's data was now
managed with whole Xorg code. With Alan hint, I'll have to do a submit
to the Xkeyboard-config's people (Sergey ?).

   with regards,
