Thanks for your advice.
I've done some hack with xmodmap, you're right, it's easy to create a
.xmodmap file to map French keyboard.
Something like:

keycode a = q Q
keycode z = w W
keycode q = a A
keycode w = z Z

When I launch "xmodmap french.xmodmap" from the terminal, it map correctly
the new keyboard.
I'm trying now to force this new mapping at startup.
Following [1], I've tried to update the /etc/X11/Xmodmap and add the call
to xmodmap in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc but without success.

Any idea where I can add the call to be sure it will be call at Sugar
startup ?
