This is required only if console-setup is used without its udebs. If
udebs are also used, then this is not necessary (but makes no harm).
I think all console-related code in localechooser will be obsoleted if
the udebs are used.

Yes. :) Console-setup was ready for etch. The only tricky part are
the udebs since I will not be able to help much here if some problems
arise. But since 95% of the code in the udebs is the same as the code
in the standalone package I don't expect any difficult problems.
