For creating a Free Software for learning tamil type writing , I would
suggest we can try localising Tuxtype to tamil keyboard layouts.
There are 2 widely used layouts for tamil in TamilNadu
1. Tamilnet99 keyboard
2. Tamil Typewriter keyboard.
Sri Lankan Tamils use a keyboard layout called Bamini.
So if we attempt to make a typing tutorial, we may need to handle all
these 3 layouts.
I hope someone from the freesoftware community start this project soon....
