An alternative approach would be to create a modified keyboard layout
file that maps the keys to characters according to your preferred
arrangement (e.g., start with a copy of the Dutch layout, but change
the character generated by the numeric keypad decimal key). This is
easy to do with the Ukelele tool (see http://scripts.sil.org/ukelele).
A possible advantage (depending exactly what you want to achieve) is
that this would apply across all OS X applications, rather than only
those using Cocoa Text.
