having played around with it a little bit myself (but not seriously
taken up Dvorak), i can say that moving the keys around is a
second-best solution on many keyboards. the keys on different rows
are angled slightly differently, making the reassembled keyboard an
uncomfortable hodgepodge. also, it's fiddly, time consuming and prone
if i were actually to take up Dvorak, i'd be looking for a hardwired board too.
