Bug#279307: debian-installer: shortcut for language/country/keymap is useful

Quoting W. Borgert (debacle@debian.org):
> Package: debian-installer
> Severity: wishlist
> Tags: d-i
> As only eight kernel parameters seem to be allowed, it is a

> countrychooser/shortlist=US

> Or whatever is possible...

This will be implemented in localechooser which will replace
languagechooser and countrychooser in further d-i development (see
/people/bubulle/localechooser in d-i SVN). Language and country will
be preseedable as preseed/locale:

 (will preseed everything)
 (will preseed everything)
 (unlocalized system)
 (will ask for country)

The keyboard layout will, however, remain preseedable distinctly as
the code for handling locales and keyboard layouts is very separate
code....making things too much interdependent is probably not a good
long-term idea...at least unless kbd-chooser is highly rewritten.
