I don't see why explicitly adding a "us" keyboard layout would hurt people,
since before 4.3.0 release en_US was a mandatory layout existing whether
the user wanted it or not.

Actually I have a plan to implement support for keyboard layout Win32 APIs
and that anyway requires rewrite of big chunks of the existing keyboard code
in x11drv, and as a part of that rewrite I'm going to decouple all existing
keyboard layout tables with a US English one and build new tables with LCID
and a layout id, but so far I don't know how to support several layouts for
single locale but with different code pages (for instance for Russian locale
we need to support 20866 (KOI8-R) and 1251 code pages).
