i found out, that this (utilizing the whole available space ) only works
because of the name of the kbd layout.
explanation: my defualt kbd was called Alpha.
I edited the next-gen kbd to meet my needs and renamed it to Alpha.kbd
after deactivating an reactivating teh illume kbd (in the kbd menu) i
realized, that the kbd got bigger, because the size is calculated from
the first kbd-layout that is in the list of available layouts.
i think this might be the same resize (or at least a similar) bug, that
prevents the kbd from utilising the space in 4:3 mode (it is only
resized if you deactivate and reactivate the kbd from within the config
so i renamed my numbers.kbd to 12345.kbd.
I mean yes, it is awesome!!! (but i dont like sliding my finger to
change kbds since i've got a whole lot of them, but this is matter of taste)
...but i am not sure how long this will work
