Well, using that layout needs it to exist in console-data. So, to make
it short (en résumé..:-)), we need someone to provide it.

I can probably do something in console-data by diverting the
French-Canadian keymap we have there.

Please also note that keymaps provided under X are *different* from
those used at the console. Therefore, xkb-data also needs to have a
Canadian Multilingual keymap and X postinst scripts must use it by
default when people choose Canada as country (/me crosses fingers for
no political issues there).

Note d'humour: you guys should use the very nice French kaymap qui
fait la joie des non-francophones.....
