This bug report is not about configuring the keyboard-configuration
package on a remote machine, but on the client, i.e. the host with
the keyboard attached.

I completely agree, but actually I just want to tell the local(!)
keyboard-configuration package which keyboard is connected. X, Xnest,
Xephyr and all other local XWindow servers could use this information,
which would disburden the user from remembering complex command
line options like

	-keybd ephyr,,,xkbmodel=evdev,xkblayout=de
