I downloaded the Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator. I'm going to make a
Thagojian keyboard. I'm also thinking about making a keyboard something
like CXS, but MS keyboards aren't completely compatible with the keystroke
order required to type CXS.

Firstly, if I were to make an installable Windows IPA keyboard layout
based on CXS, which of you would be interested in a copy, if any?

Secondly, do you have any suggestions for implementation details?

Thirdly, are there any other requests for keyboard layouts? Basically, I
can assign any Unicode character to any key on the keyboard, using Shift
and AltGr appropriately, with "proper" Caps Lock operation (i.e. capital
"plain" and AltGr letters, but non capital numbers, symbols and so on).
I'm thinking about adjusting the US International keyboard to add wynn,
yogh, and a few others as AltGr characters, as well as replacing the
acutes with macrons, and implementing the ae ligature properly (including
macron). I might try a keyboard for all those funky characters on Latin
Extended D, if I can figure out how.
