Bug#704768: debian-installer: no neo2 keymap

Quoting Simon Reinhardt (simon.reinhardt@stud.uni-regensburg.de):
> Package: debian-installer
> Version: wheezy RC-1-Release
> Severity: wishlist
> Hi,
> I have a keyboard with the german "Neo2" layout.
> Currently it appears that there is no option to select it in the debian-
> installer.
> I can only enable it after the installation with "dpkg --reconfigure keyboard-
> configuration".
> Would be great to have it in the installer!

Just like we had for the many request for some "non standard" keymaps
which we had in the past, I'll make the same answer : adding more
keymapsto the installer has a cost, in memory and complexity. We
deliberately chose several years ago to not make things too
complicated for users : for instance, for each language we usually
offer one option, usually the most widespread one in the countries
that use this language.

The overall rationale is that users of less common keymaps will always
have the opportunity to reconfigure console-setup on the installed system.
