I think you should refrain from making statement like that Allan,  

My keyboards were, are and will be AZERTY.
- Being forced to make option + whatever then the letter to have  
accented chars would be plain stupid in french.
- I'm used to azerty and a 20+ year habit is hard to change.
- It would be a nightmare every time I'd have to use something else  
that my macs (@ work, etc.)
- I don't write to my friends by coding/using the shell.
- I don't want to use the option key every time I write my name. ;)

Why not asking me to stop speaking french altogether?

The only thing that piss me off on my belgian keyboard is the need to  
use shift to get a dot, but I changed in 10s with the free Ukelele[1]


On the other hand I don't understand you neither, Bernhard.
What's so hard about changing a keybinding or two???
e.g. I changed cmd + [ to cmd + (, etc.

If you are ready to drop TM for such a minor thing, I wonder why you  
bought it first...
