Patch: Swiss German keyboard layout

This patch adds a new Swiss German keyboard layout.

Many special characters are available if you long-press a key.

The new layout includes an extra row of keys. Therefore I recommend installing the smaller keyboard patch which reduces the default height of the keyboard so it does not take as much space on the screen.

Note: the keyboard has a special key on the symbols page for switching to the emoji keyboard. You can use the color emoji patch to be able to use all emojis with skin tone variations, etc. If no emoji keyboard is enabled, the key lets you quickly switch between the current and the last used character keyboard.
