Description of problem:
This may be a crazy idea I am not sure yet (which came up during
Fedora i18n discussions around https://fedorahosted.org/i18n/ticket/26
but in principle it seems it would be useful to filter keyboard layouts
by their compatibility with a chosen keyboard geometry.
There are various difficulties here:
- parsing of the xkb data files itself will be complex
- assuming it is possible to get this filtering to work
applications like anaconda will need some subtle
or larger changes to support setting of keyboard geometry
separately from keyboard layouts.
Still it seems like a worthy goal to try to reduce or structure
the current large amount of clutter currently when making keyboard config
