The patch I provided adds less than 1k to ash, and requires no additional
libraries to be linked (just libc.so.6 and ld-linux.so.2).  I'm putting
together a .deb with it applied so folks can try it out and see what they think
(I'll post a link to it when I finish).  It really is much nicer IMHO.  And it
makes ash comply with debian keyboard policy,
