Svg is always scaled to display resolution.

I think i don't understand the question. You should be able to open the svg in 
inkscape and do all the work there (moving keys, changing the text or changing 
the unicode values).

Yes please.

It should be possible. E.g. the predictive keyboard uses bottom bar. I wanted 
to implement it but i also didnt want to hold the release more. So i will try 
to do it for v46.

I can implement key for screen rotation or maybe if the layout filename 
contains "landscape" it could rotate the screen.

I think there is script in /opt/qtmoko/bin called bt-poweroff.sh which turns 
bluetooth off. Maybe adding it to /etc/rc.local or qpe.sh could do it.
