The right way of doing this is to make a userland keymap, putting
only the most necessary bits into kernel. There is potentially
huge number of different keymaps, and I would like to avoid adding
such stuff to kernel.
(Yes, the current keymaps should be moved from kernel to
userland keymaps too).
See the already existing keymaps in /usr/share/wscons/keymaps/
There is even one for ru.koi8-r.
