That's mostly useless - almost every keyboard will return
the "ab 41", independently of the layout or language.
(Even the DEC LK451 etc, which look really different.)
There seem to be exceptions - I believe some HP keyboards
return something else, but only to identify the brand,
not the language afaik.
