This keyboard layout quite differs from one people are used to. This
includes me and everybody using phonetic layout I know. Forcing
bulgarian users to switch will cause lot of pain. IMHO there should be
tree layouts:

 * BDS one, BAS national standard, the non-phonetic one
 * Old phonetic one, unofficial, not approved by BAS but what most
   people use
 * New phonetic one, BAS standard.
