aaah the full qwerty one doesn't have arrow keys... but he layout file is just a
text config file.

svn checkout http://svn.projects.openmoko.org/svnroot/illume


is hwta u want
just copy that on top of Default.kbd
(or make it a symlink) on the system (/usr/lib/enlightenment/modules/illume/...
in the keyboards dir). or even better
just dump it there
then u can flip from numeric, default and full qwerty just by sliding up.

you can add some arrow keys easily to the file - the .kbd files are just simple
text. they define keys in a virtual layout area and what keys they produce.
mind u - i'm working on the code right now fixing a bunch of stuff up.. so
thing may shuffle around a bit in future and change. the idea was to make the
keyboard layout a config file - not compiled into they keyboard so you dont
have to keep changing virtual keyboards for a simply change in layout or key
