Interesting.  Sysinstall has asked for country information and then
asked you to choose a keymap (using kbdmap) if you selected a
non-default country as the first two questions (i.e. before you get the
sysinstall menu) since 6.1.  Would that be a good solution still?

Some of the other points brought up later about wanting to switch
between two different keymaps seem sensible too, though I don't
initially see how that would be possible.
