Yes, but also Debian 6 didn't have as many languages. This was discussed
at the time, and when switching to console-setup. We cannot deal with
each user's preference, Debian already has a reputation of asking too
many questions that users don't know to answer.

There is an open requestion for the dvorak-like layouts, which could
make its way by letting users find it out in the list, then choose
which dvorak-like layout to use. That would probably be a reasonable
compromise. But I don't see how presenting each and every variant would
be good for our users.
