Yes. I use this patch to make custom french installations for our organization,
where all keyboards are "azerty". When I read the top level 'config', I 
found this variable, "KBD", but it was not used. So, I have made this little
patch to have a default layout and to suppress the keyboard configuration (in
the default questions).

This was to make "custom" CDs, with little interaction.

Yes, but to get the default behavior, KBD must be unset in 'config', else the
dboostrap won't ask the keyboard.
