Console-setup must support everything X supports, here we are talking
only for default settings that will allow less questions to be asked
with high priority.
If there is xorg.conf with correct settings, they will be used -
alt-intl, basic, whatever, and they will work. Otherwise (i.e. there is
no xorg.conf), the settings of console-data will be used. Both your
keyboard settings and those of Frans are not supported by console-data
so you both will have to use dpkg-reconfigure after the install of
The bad variant is when some user (like Frans) uses the graphical
environment to customize the keyboard, leaving wrong settings in
xorg.conf. In this case after the install of console-setup the console
will be broken because console-setup will use the settings from
xorg.conf for its defaults.
