Also consider adding an easy way to add an xmodmap to the keyboard 
layout selector. As it stands, I had to put the xmodmap command (I'm 
using a custom finnish dvorak variant) to Desktop preferences / 
Sessions, and that was after way too much research.

If that's not viable, consider at least documenting the recommended way 
to do it in the docs far the layout switcher. I still don't know the 
right way, and xmodmap is *way* easier to grok than dealing with xkb...
