No, but isn't that the point of separating sv_SE.UTF-8 from
sv_SE.ISO-8859-1? gettext does the conversion on the fly, so all
gettext-using programs work just fine. Debconf doesn't. (yet)

Yes, I've read the bug info (I also notice that sv is missing), but this
uses iconv so even if iconv can be used by cdebconf, it can't be used by
d-i on that single floppy. I will look at the d-d thread, thanks.
