Sorry, but I do not agree that key bindings are robust in emacs. I use 
English and Russian keyboard layouts. Last years most of application 
could handle shortcuts independently of active layout (E.g. Ctrl+C and 
Ctrl+V works for copy-paste even if Russian layout is currently chosen.)
In Emacs, only Control + Latin C works, Control + Cyrillic S (the same 
physical key) is undefined. Location of punctuation symbols depends on 
active layout, "$" is absent in Russian layout at all. It is extremely 
inconvenient to switch to US layout before any shortcut. Emacs uses its 
own input methods, but it means that desktop environment should treat 
emacs in a special way in respect to keyboard layouts. I have a kind of 
solution, I found its variants in blog posts. It is quite tricky, so I 
do not consider it as reliable and suitable for any user.
