There is an alternative, manual keyboard in qtopia that we are currently not using.
Add this in will allow people to use a kbd in terminal sessions, or could be a replacement for the auto generated kbd currently used in Om 2008.8.

Hey Tick,
Do you think you could look into this? We want to add a terminal by default in the next update, but without the keyboard switching it won't be usable. I know you have your work, but Holger is also badly overloaded.
What do you think?

I have added a class that allows to switch the Qtopia keyboard via dbus. I have not verified that illume is coping with the switch and om-settings will need a way to switch the keyboard. The next step should be to hack om-settings.
