Hey! I haven't tried it yet but do you mean this new Keyboard Layout
Handler replaces old simple Keyboard Switcher applet? I would hate it if
it does! I have non-standard keyboard layout which is loaded at the login
and I still love to see US or UA indicator on panel. I never want to have
some standard layouts - I will need three-layouts-cycle which I hate very
much as it leads to wrong layout very often. So if the Keyboard Switcher
applet is removed now I hate the man who did that and I demand to bring
it back.

I'm the man that made it and guess what, I hate you too
