You can probably change it. Poke around /usr/share/locale/l10n and
maybe grep the term dvorak. I also use dvorak, I have the language
indicator set to " " for US-English, and "D" for dvorak so that I can
tell which is selected.

Start a new thread on the subject and don't hijack! (That was with a smile).
