Bug Description

I think the keyboard layout indicator should display the language name or abbreviation instead of a country name. First, as far as I know, you don't actually use two country layouts of the same language, so this information is not important after you configure your keyboard layouts. Second, as an Israeli I find it strange to have "USA" written there, as English is an international language. Indeed, computers exported to Israel use the USA layout, but this is just a technical detail.

This was fixed by implementing indicator-keyboard, using an abbreviation of the language name in its icon. <>
