That's interesting. Good job, Konstantinos.

I tested this in Japanese.

1. update-locale-config uses "ja_JP", but Japanese locale has always
   encoding name also. "ja_JP.eucJP" (this is default locale for
   Japanese, and d-i creates this) or "ja_JP.UTF-8" (UTF-8, optional).
2. xfree86-kbd gets kbdmap from language. But I think it would be
   taken from d-i value or console-data. When I use US pc104 keyboard
   with Japanese locale, mismatch occurs.
3. xfree86-kbd sets only XkbLayout.
   But at least Japanese keyboard needs to set XkbModel. Typical
   Japanese keyboard setting is following:

        Option          "XkbRules"      "xfree86"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "jp106"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "jp"

   (debconf parameter is xserver-xfree86/config/inputdevice/keyboard/model.)
4. When I run "update-locale-config ja_JP", it includes:

   Running /usr/lib/localization-config//ltsp-xfree86-kbd ja_JP
   Running /usr/lib/localization-config//opera ja_JP

   Is this right result?
