Debian Installer does not set the keyboard layout for X. This is a job
that's done in xserver-xorg's postinst script.

Even in xorg maintainer scripts, the keymap setting is currently done
only by choosing the appropriate X keymap, not by tweaking the
Xsession file. So, really, I'm not sure whether the xorg maintainers
may do something
