Err, it looks plain wrong to me to configure the keyboard on the server
side.  If I want to connect to the same server from another machine
which has another keyboard layout, the layout is bogus.  So it should be
configured on the client side, since that's where the keyboard is. And
you can do it, e.g.

Xephyr -keybd ephyr,,,xkbmodel=evdev,xkblayout=de :3 -screen 1280x1024 -query vserver1 -terminate
