Comment(by eben):

 I have a few thoughts here. First, I wonder if the keyboard layout choice
 would be work in a popup menu instead of the huge scrolling list. If we
 keep the list, perhaps it can be sized to fill only the left 1/3 of the
 window, to allow room for other keyboard controls.

 Other items which I think could/should be included in the keyboard control
 panel are key repeat rate & delay, and the suggested keyboard shortcut
 mapping system.

 Going forward, I'm more than happy to provide design feedback, or even
 make some mockups once there is basic consensus on what options to
 provide, but if you want to take the bug and make sure it's active that's
 fine with me.
