that's exactly why i left windows far behind. doing configuration once and
then just using the program is what i like about unix. this gui stuff, 
constantly changing configuration, most of the time doing the wrong thing 
or doing nothing at all is really irritating. this way, there's not even any
documentation for the configs anymore. what you can't click, you can't do.

one question. svn version xkb-plugin doesn't read it's config(it writes it
though). would there be any possibility of a quick fix? not that i don't like
the us flag constantly starring at me from the panel, but i'd prefer the "us"
"cz" description.
