Interesting question. We currently have:

-install libfribidi0 for RTL languages. Can certainly be moved earlier

-install localization-config. Ditto, I guess

-configure the console. Better keep it at the end, after other
packages have been installed

On the topic of console-cyrillic configuration: I tested removing
completely the config by localechooser. This works. Indeed, when one
installs in a language that triggers the install of console-cyrillic,
that package is automatically configured and prompts for specific
settings during its installation with pkgsel. So, as Eugen suggested,
the code in localechooser's finish-install is useless and, even,
nasty, as it overwrites choices made by the user. We can definitely
remove it and I'll commit that change soon.
