[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#434124: xfce4-xkb-plugin: Cannot differentiate layouts with the same XkbLayout name

Package: xfce4-xkb-plugin
Version: 0.4.3-1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

I'm a user of the Dvorak keyboard layout, so I have an xkb entry with
XkbLayout=us, XkbVariant=dvorak.  And I want other non-Dvorak users to
be able to type on my keyboard, so I have an extra entry with
XkbLayout=us, XkbVariant=(empty).  But since XkbLayout is the same, the
labels shown in xfce4-xkb-plugin is exactly the same.  I'd like to have
it at least showing a suffix like "(2)" and "(3)" in such cases so that
they are distinguishable.  The attached patch does just that.

Please also forward to upstream.
