Just a thought: for Windows systems I believe it might be fairly trivial  
to extract all this information from the DLLs that contain the keyboard  
layouts Windows ships with. That would give you much better coverage of  
the various Windows layouts than ad-hoc testing by list members.

I don't know exactly how to extract such tables but maybe our Microsoft  
friend Travis could help us find someone who does? :)
