The package console-cyrillic does the oposite for the Cyrillic
languages.  This package is simply an inteligent wrapper arount
`consolechars' and `loadkeys'.  It provides the Linux console with
flexible keyboard configuration similar to what xkb provides to X

It is possible to extend the functionality of console-cyrillic to
cover non-Cyrillic languages, but this would require manual conversion
of the files in /etc/X11/xkb/symbols to another format.
