Configure X: multiple keyboard layouts ?

I'd like to configure X for multiple keyboard layouts, e. g.:
- swiss french
On my Linux box (running CentOS 5.4 and a dated version of X.org), the
configuration for this looks like this :
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "fr,ch,de"
Option "XkbVariant" ",fr,"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
This stanza enables me to toggle between different keyboard layouts,
using the [Alt]+[RightShift] key combination. You might wonder about the
XkbVariant option: the swiss keyboard layout has two variants: fr and
de. This is to indicate the swiss roman layout.
Now is there any way I could achieve a similar thing with the more
recent X.org shipping with FreeBSD 8.0 ?
Any suggestions ?
