Well, there's a quite unprofessional hack done in my 128D, involving
wires and stuff.... I would have expected more from Commodore, but
the guy who gave me the thing claimed that it was in it's original state.

By the way: A belgium / french C128 keyboard is just _ugly_ to look
at (several keys have 4 different layouts. Especially the numberkeys
are a mess, because while the US keyboards have the numbers unshifted,
AZERTY keyboards have them shifted. Almost as annoying as the lack
of number keys on a PET (apart from the numeric keypad) )
