I suppose I could, but I'm still confused as to how this is supposed
to work. The boot process must be loading a keymap at some point, but
it's clearly not getting it from console-setup, or keymaps.sh. Rather
than write a new script to over-ride the default keymap, there should
be a way to select a different default? The documentation for
console-select suggests this is true, but provides no details.
