Bug#241434: d-i: multiple paths for keyboard selector, "back" broken

Quoting Joey Hess (joeyh@debian.org):

Having it called "Main menu" and always bring users to the main menu
would be indeed an interesting compromise, yes.

Problem : this is currently a standard widget from the newt
package. If we simply change it, we will affect all packages using it
in "normal" debconf operations, no?

Also, if we find a way to do this, we should try to avoid lowering the
debconf priority to medium....so this is indeed tricky as trying to go
back to main-menu with priority=high will never display the menu..:-)
