	Someone else asked me that question lately. They wanted to do the same
thing with the volume control if the device couldn't be opened. 
	I think its actuall better if the applet stays on the panel but gives
some indication that its not working correctly rather than just not
appearing - e.g. making the widgets insensitive and adding a tooltip
explaining that XKB isn't enabled.

Good Luck,
