Bug#290738: debian-installer: Select default keyboard based on country (finnish => fi)

Package: debian-installer
Severity: wishlist

This is a small feature request, but would give "a finishing touch" to
the installer. Let me explain:

- I use the dialog language in english, because the computer terms
  are better for me to understand during installation than my
  my native language's equivalents.

So, in next step I choose country:

- Finland

And it would be nice if next screen offered keyboard

- "fi"

by default based on the selected country. This same could be applied
to other country selections as well. 

One more note, the default keyboard in Europe's countries is pc105, so
you could offer that as a default selection. (I don't remember if this
was in installer ot in Xfree setting).
