How is Fedora non-american keyboard support for you?

I don't think this is country specific. I had a similar problem when I
switched from US qwerty to US dvorak. Fedora was thinking I was using
Arabic keyboard everytime I reboot and I had to use
system-config-keyboard. Then I discovered an .rpmnew file in /etc
(sorry I forgot what it was but it was about layouts). I guess that an
old configuration file was kept in /etc when the keyboard layout
software (what is it?) got updated, and the old configuration file was
not compatible with the new software. I wish this was tested before it
gets pushed to stable.
I am just telling in case it might give you an idea, or inspiration...
