In latin keyboard the space left and right of row 2 are dead, Windows Phone f.e. handles this by making that space bound to the A and L.

Also there is dead space between the bottom of the keyboard and the keys right above, which makes me mistype every now and then.

This PR removes the padding-bottom of the keyboard area and makes the last keyboard row higher instead. It also enlarges the key container for the first and last key in a row when the full width is not being used, to fill up the row completely. This reduces mistapping in the keyboard as there is no more dead space.

This is a great improvement!

r+ if you:

-- address the one comment on Github
-- the visual looks exactly the same, or UX f+ the screenshot of the visual changes
-- the keyboard doesn't break on non HVGA phones (you should at least try WVGA and qHD (width 480px and 540px respectively)

Thank you!

This patch appears to have caused bug 882954.

I suspect that this patch also causes the wrong size A and L keys when the keyboard is in landscape mode.
