Weren't Commodore keyboards manufactured by Mitsumi?  I wouldn't hold my
breath, though.  Many new keyboards nowadays are disposable Windows
keyboards that cannot be opened without breaking them.  Does anyone know
if those "normal" 101-key or 102-key PC keyboards are still manufactured?
I've seen those 104-key or 105-key Windows keyboards even on Unix
workstations, such as the Digital Alpha or Silicon Graphics O2 series.
(European PC keyboards have "split" the left shift key to two keys.)
