I don't speak Perl fluently so it's hard for me to comment but your
solution seems elegant, indeed.

I would very much welcome a test of D-I images built with such
modified console-setup udeb replacing the kbd-chooser udeb. Last time,
I personnally tried to do this (over 1.5 years ago), I indeed "just"
built a D-I netboot image with console-setup-udeb replacing
kbd-chooser and voilà....

Things were working fairly well, but the only obstable was the non
translated keymap names.

How big is a udeb built with these translations incorportated?
