Fair enough. So there has to be a decision whether or not to invest
time/effort for users of QWERTZ keyboard layouts.

If we should decide to ignore non US_intl/en_US-issues, I vote for
making this decision very clear to new users with a prominent
sentence in our documentation.

Personally, I do think that tech-savvy users of non English speaking
countries should definitely consider switching to US_intl layout for
many reasons.  From my experience, only a minority of text-savvy
users are doing so. But this is also true for applying live-hacking
as a habit in general :-(
