makes sense.

That tarball-in-git-thing bugged my so I resolved that issue in the
process.  It turned out the turkish keymap contained C code rather than
a keymap.  Yes, really.

I have stored that keymap of yours as "sf.map" rather than "ch(fr).map"
since that avoids braces and seems to be what others are calling it [1][2].

Please review branch "keymaps" so it can be merged into master:

Best,



Sebastian
