Setting the keymap as soon as possible was a design choice done before I
ever headr about Debian, I think. Whether it is still valid is an open
issue, as the reasons to do that were not kept anywhere I know of.
Probably this should be discussed here and if noone objects changed ASAP,
so that any problems get caught quickly.

I had started this before potato release, and started using debconf.
However I did that in a rather complicated way which needs to be rewritten,
which I have started to do - I did not put much time here however.
Basically, /etc/console-tools/config should end up being generated by the
postinst from debconf-entered information.
