Hmmm. You got me on that.

Actually, it's not anglocentric nor braziliocentric. The ~ character is
part of the standard
ASCII character set, just like !@#$%&*() etc are. Most brazilians use the
version of the keboard, and the brazilian version has the ~ key too. I
any keyboard layout would genarate at least the basic character set, but
now I realize I am wrong.
I hope you don't change the ~= to ¡= :-)
