For me, the "right thing" is to see on the screen what I type on the
keyboard. A comma on the keyboard should produce a comma on the screen.
For a key labeled "decimal separator" there might be an issue what
symbol to produce on the screen, dependent on the local preferences
(eg. comma vs. dot as decimal separator) but I don't see this here.
I had asked about this change on regional-de@ and people were rather
indifferent. So I thought I would change it for consistency's sake.
If you're really unhappy with the change revert it; my heart isn't
attached to that key :-)
