Unfortunately, this isn't true: many national keyboards in Europe don't 
have keys for some of those ( {, |, and } seem to be most prone to 
this).  You need to press some AltGr-key combination to get them.  IIRC,
\ and _ have some issues on Japanese keyboards.

I remember that someone told me SIGQUIT was a pain in some European 
country (Germany?) because you need a combination of keys to produce \.
