Dear Apple,

[update: don’t ask me how the kanji open-quote got turned into an accented a; it’s an ecto/MovableType thing that happens occasionally]

Unlike Windows (any version), Mac OS X correctly keeps track of keyboard layouts, even going so far as to ask the user about possibly non-standard layouts. Except in the Kotoeri input method, where it insists that all keyboards share the same layout, so that my English external keyboard is assumed to have the same layout as my laptop’s built-in Japanese keyboard, forcing me to guess where you hid the ‘「’ key (blackslash, by the way).
