Bug#661825: do we need to provide keymaps in kbdcontrol?

severity 661825 normal

I think that for now I'll assume everything is working fine with the
new scheme. In this scenario the old debconf questions and their
associated keyboard files are harmless, and still useful for users
upgrading from Squeeze.

At some point we can remove support for the old mechanism completely,
but this doesn't necessarily have to happen in Wheezy IMHO.
