FWIW (bring your sickbag, it's an enormous pile of something that looks
a bit like Forth; I've deleted a fair bit of the crazier SuSE code that
I didn't think we needed but I'm sure there are some bits left in
there). Since it includes language and keyboard selection it needs to be
kept up to date with d-i, so I think it would be best to maintain it in
the d-i repository - I could do some light editing and shovel the
necessary bits around.
It needs some changes to debian-cd too, of course.
