Right, my Swedish/Finnish keyboard has the same layout.  But still
keys "," and "." are located on the same positions on both layouts
(two keys to the right of "M").  However, I suggest to make
keybindings similar to those provided by Gnus.  They are very handy.

    "<" go to the beginning of message
    ">" go to the end of message
    "M-<" go to the first message
    "M->" go to the last message
