Well, actually, you are missing one important point - the reason why I
introduced 2 configuration UIs. The settings user makes in
xkb-properties-capplet work even if he does not add the applet into the
panel. They are actualized at the session startup. The settings for the
applet are configured separately (in  gswitchit-properties-capplet)
because they work only if the applet is added into the panel. Is this a
sensible reason to have 2 capplets? Actually, I don't mind to merge
interfaces - but I would find it a bit confusing - to explain user which
settings require applet and which not.
