One side benefit is that no one can shoulder surf your password.

Security through obscurity is not the best of strategies. If someone notices your shoulder surfed password doesn't work with qwerty, it's a trivial step to try it on dvorak/colemak.

If they know to try that, they deserve access to my gmail account. :-)
