if you try the patch you'll notice the keyboard is quite larger now...

That was my first attempt, but it seems that that menu has nothing to
deal with the keyboard itself. It just sends basic signals like
create/destroy to the widget and sets up the next one.
Anyway, toggling/untoggling predictability is not something you do that
often I guess, and it works ok with the diagonal slide.

I'm having harder time in showing some graphics on the keyboard to have
a feedback from that action.
