Add Keymap Switcher optional package

Description

It would be nice to have the ability to add the Keymap Switcher that many of us use as an optional package in the build system. Fortunately, a patch to add this as an optional package is available here (from the Keymap Switcher devs?):

I would like to embed a keymap switcher into Haiku, but until I will have done so, having this optional package would be nice.

In the meantime, the bits from that patch can be added manually to your UserBuildConfig to prevent hacking of the OptionalPackages file as such:

InstallOptionalHaikuImagePackage HaikuKeymapSwitcher-package-1.0.0.1
	:  http://downloads.sourceforge.net/dotmatrix4beos/HaikuKeymapSwitcher-package-1.0.0.1.zip
	:
;

AddSymlinkToHaikuImage home config be Desktop\ Applets
	: /boot/system/apps/KeymapSwitcher
;

I almost simply applied the patch yesterday, but I didn't think it was nice that the patch installs into /boot/system. Why not /boot/common ? It's a third-party add-on for the moment. Otherwise I'd be just fine with adding this.

Ups... You are right! I'll repackage it ASAP to be installed under /boot/common and let you know!

I have attached correct patch for OptionalPackages and changed the package zip to be installed under /boot/common.

PS: what about #1449 ?
