What about a continuously variable system which starts with the most 
commonly used letters and then adjusts itself based on user input.  It 
could learn which letters a specific person uses to type and make them 
more prominent. Then, depending on modes the programming or web 
searching or other keyboards would automatically adapt to the best 
layout based on the users individual behavior.
