Bug#581758: keyboard-configuration: way to enable xserver zapping not documented

Package: keyboard-configuration
Version: 1.51
Severity: normal

There is no documentation on how to enable xserver zapping functionality
in keyboard-setup, a rather important feature which changed default
behavior since last stable release. The only way to normally find out
is to run dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration _and_ let
keyboard-configuration completely rewrite all the setting (it cannot
reproduce more complex multi-layout settings easily, it seems).

Either keyboard-configuration setup should handle enabling the zapping
without touching the rest of the layout setup, or it needs to be clearly
documented that users can enable it themselves by appending
"terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp" to XKBOPTIONS.
