Similar questions were part of my motivation for writing the module.

The module handles different keyboard layouts fairly easily.  There's a
function register_layout() that lets you specify your own layouts.  The
module currently has QWERTY, Dvorak and ASET keyboard layouts built in. If
you create another layout, let me know so that I can add it to the module.
