      Description

      The KeyCode reported by JavaFX on OS-X with a
      german keyboard is used (where z and y are interchanged) is wrong.

      If you press a Z you get as the KeyCode.Y and for Y you get KeyCode.Z -
      this Y/Z problem. I don't think that I as a java-dev need to deal with
      that and if you look at other toolkits (swing, swt) they handle this
      transparently for me!

      I've attached you a javafx and swing application and you'll notice that
      swing reports always the correct keycode (no matter if my keyboard
      layout is english or german) and javafx is wrong on german keyboards.
