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?
