As a side note, if I'm not mistaken, there has been a Red Hat
Linux release with the numeric keypad key "." outputting always
"," when using the appropriate locale, but this made the users
quite frustrated because many of them are used to using this key
to really mean ".", not always "decimal separator" (the dot at
the end of a sentence, the dot in programming languages, etc).
