wow, just wow. :) While you obviously like it that way, I'd say if I 
have to choose between some minor inconvenience in one or two 
applications and dealing with a foreign keyboard layout, having to learn 
shortcuts for common characters of my native language (and having to 
re-adapt every time I use another computer), I'll choose the 
inconvenience of sometimes having to use the mouse or remap some 
shortcut. :)

It might have come over quite harsh, but actually I don't mind much that 
some shortcuts don't work (such as Ctrl-|). I can remap those which are 
of use to me. But I was just baffled by the fact that a simple 
Ctrl-Cmd-Alt-K wouldn't work as intended. :)
