There is anybody working to an application that allow the user to choose the character to be mapped into the keymap? I am developing an app that make this and i have heard that other people are making a similar app.

The preference app Keymap can do that; you can drag characters from one key to another with it. Too bad you can't store characters in some kind of intermediate storage. This means you loose characters in the process :( Unless I don't understand all the ins and outs of the program that is, which isn't particularly unlikely. If there is a way however, it isn't intuitive and needs to be changed anyway. (Do any old-time BeOS users know?)

I've once made a start on recreating Keymap but I dropped it later on. If you feel like it, you could pick it up where I left off or otherwise steal code and/or coordinates from it. It's in cvs in current/src/preferences/Keymap I believe.
