As a portuguese speaker (and writer :) I have to make use of accents in
my language. I have configured my keyboard to use dead-keys. Everything
is doing fine. The only think that I have to do is change from xmodmap
.xmod-port  to xmodmap .xmod-eng. My suggestion for the  AS application
developers is a very simple one: one button in the Wharf indicating if
the keyboard is english or portuguese (or whatever). A click on this
button would run the xmodmap command and the icon changes
accordingly.    

It is not original. It is how another SO does. It does not sound
complex, doesnt it? I would appreciate any help.

best wishes

P.S.: I dont want to start a war about why the kernel does not support
accents, but it would be very welcome for many users in many countries.
