Thanks, Mario for looking it over.

Yeah, that must be a bug with how I converted mythbuntu pages to use the
new framework.  It might require small API changes to be able to specify
'after install' as a plugin.  But since we're already post-FF, if it
would, I think I'll just hardcode it in the mythbuntu frontend and we
can fix it for realz next cycle.  We know we're not fully converted
internally anyway.  So that would put this change under the 'bug fix'
category.  I'll look at it today.

Thanks for your continued work on getting this in, Evan.  In your patch,
I would put the following line:
+from ubiquity.frontend.kde_components.Keyboard import *
inside the PageKde.__init__ function (with the other imports there) and
make it:
+from ubiquity.frontend.kde_components.Keyboard import Keyboard

Because otherwise, you'd be importing KDE code even when processing that
file for GTK+.
