Hey guys,

kbd also depends on console-common | console-setup, yet another path to
console-data …

Is there any chance to get console-setup installed earlier on?  If that
worked, we’d only have to downgrade a few Recommends: to Suggests: for
now.  Otherwise I’m perfectly fine with kbd preferring console-setup
over console-data (that’s the way it should be, anyway).

I’m not at all comfortable with switching from console-tools to kbd
right now, though.  It feels like a bad idea to change the default from
a package which is installed nearly everywhere to the 13%-popcon kbd, in
the middle of a freeze.  I’m really annoyed at myself for not pushing
this long-needed transition right after the release of Lenny, as I had
originally planned.
