I'm strongly against fixing problems with new XFree86 4.3.0 this way and
polluting x11drv with lots of similar keyboard layouts. A way to solve
your problem is to use something like this in your XF86Config:

Option "XkbLayout" "us,si"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:ctrl_shift_toggle"

I.e. explicitly add "us" layout as the first language group and use
Ctrl+Shift to switch between base and alternate keyboard layouts.
