gtk and cedilla, a big brazillian problem

One of the mostly annoying thinks about gtk is ‘ç’, especially when you are a Portuguese speaker and use US keyboard + gtk, this is because someone on the past made this choice

at us-intl keyboards, acute+c = ć

I’m not arguing against Polish, Bosnian, Croatian or Serbian, but is a stupid choice when we compare the use of ç in the Latin World (Brazil, France, Spain, Portugal, etc) , even English has some ç.

My way to solve that is simple.

diff gtk.immodules.old /etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules

< "cedilla" "Cedilla" "gtk+" "/usr/share/locale"
> "cedilla" "Cedilla" "gtk+" "/usr/share/locale" "az:ca:co:fr:gv:oc:pt:sq:tr:wa:en"

I hope that, some day, someone will fix that or put at the gtk ebuild a flag like us_latin_cedilla

180 millions of Brazilians will  love it.
