This is in reference to patch 1294110 which is a good idea. Hopefully this closed that patch as well.

Fixed the qwertz_de.kbd (removed extra blank lines). There doesn't appear to be a plain qwertz.kbd unless it is something recent. Both my reference (old) and wikipedia appear to have qwertz based on the german-centric keyboard. Just added the other two generic 2 keyboards, azerty, qwerty-(europe) see:

The above is a reference guide for an XT/AT keyboards which were popular around the time XT and AT computers were made.
keyboards then were US (aspell standard), UK (aspell standard is about same), german (qwertz), french (azerty), spanish italian danish swedish norwegian finnish (qwerty).
