Xkb state indicator

'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).
