English, Nederlands (bizarre). Editing the basic en_US character maps  
in the symbols file had no effect.

No. It's slow, it's clumsy, it's obnoxious.

My standards for text input are, perhaps, a bit high since I managed a  
"Greased Lightning" rating on the N800 finger keyboard. ;) I _would_  
continue using that, but Nokia's managed to introduce another slew of  
bugs into virtual input (after fixing _most_ of the bad ones from  
Diablo—although I think some of them are simply eliminated race  
conditions thanks to faster hardware).

This is a pretty trivial thing to do for any Linux distribution  
running X, and once we manage to figure this out I'd like to try to  
get a control panel put together to make it easy for anybody to remap.
