The problem common to Greek and Cyrillic is how to configure
keybindings in such a way that single characters bound to
`self-insert-command' remained untranslated as they are typed
with a non-English system input method, but to translate
single characters to English letters when they are bound
to other Emacs commands (like `v' in Dired mode)
that would allow to run commands bound to them.
