Thank you for the contribution.  But, the current
development code (cvs HEAD trunk) already has the very
similar layout as yours (cyrillic-microsoft) by the name
"russian-computer".  The difference is only this:

russian-computer:    ("\\" ?\\)
cyrillic-microsoft:  ("\\" ?/)

The comment in our current code says as below (I'll attach
the whole code at the end):

;; This was `cyrillic-jcuken'.  Alexander Mikhailian
;; <mikhailian@altern.org> says:  "cyrillic-jcuken" is actually
;; russian.  It is ok but a bit outdated.  This layout has been used
;; in typewriters for ages but it has been superceeded on desktops by
;; a variation of this layout, implemented in M$ Windows software.
;; The Windows layout is greatly preferred because of the comma and
;; period being placed more conviniently and, of course, because of
;; the popularity of Windows software. This layout is a common option
;; in X Windows and console layouts for GNU/Linux.  [See
;; `russian-computer' below.]

So, it seems that the layout of russian-computer is the one
supported on Windows.  Could you please discuss with
Mr. Mikhailian about this issue?
