AFAIK, console-cyrillic is just a set of cyrillic fonts, keymaps and a script
to tie them up. One thing to mention is that keymap is generated dynamically
by the script from a base keymap and a chosen method of layout switching.
That's all.

I've always wondered about why not to include all these fonts into console-data
or kbd package (not sure what is currently used in Etch)? The same can be done
with keymaps.

The feature for choosing a method for the layout switching is very useful though,
IMHO. So, may be it is reasonable to support such a feature on the D-I level for
all languages which have non-latin keyboard layout without a dedicated key for
layout switching?

That way we can get rid of console-cyrillic and make the keyboard layout managment
more generic and language independent.
