Thank you for the digging I've updated the commit message to reflect
this info and correct the grammar errors Bastien pointed out. I've
tried to push this, but it just hangs ? Maybe because I don't have
write access to xkeyboard-config (it is sitting outside of the
xorg tree after all) ?

Anyways I'll send a v2 with the improved commit message, if you can push
that, that would be great.
