'Gswitchit' as an xkb state indicator for the GNOME panel. It supports up to four keyboard groups, with customizable images for each group. Users switch between keyboards by either a popup menu or the mouse; there's an (optional) bell that sounds when a switch is made. Any key combination can be used to switch; the combinations are fully customizable. The program also supports "secondary" layouts (i.e. those reachable only from a popup menu) and independent layout switching per window (optional).
