Emil Oppeln-Bronikowski opened #6267. Meantime, I contacted Alastair
McKinstry, the Debian maintainder of console-common and console-tools;
unfortunately, these packages are already frozen for sarge and even an
unstable upload is currently out of the question.

What are the chances of making an Ubuntu-specific (i.e., not-synced with
Debian unstable for the time being) Hoary package that would include
this keymap and make it into Hoary? I understand why it's questionable,
but it's just one keymap and it would fit so nicely with moving Ubuntu
to UTF-8 smoothly...
