Switching d-i to kbd for squeeze?

Can we switch from console-tools to kbd for squeeze? These days kbd is
better maintained (I know they've gone back and forth in the past), and
its setfont program supports a wider range of fonts than does
consolechars. Doing this would let us get rid of some grottiness in
localechooser's finish-install script where we make automatic
modifications to a conffile (!).

This is largely independent of the work on switching to console-setup,
which still needs a set of underlying console utilities.

If there's consensus, I can commit the relevant fixes.
