Those options are for pc console driver and used almost on install
floppies. IMO, wscons(4) has already JP-106 keyboard support.
So, there might be some room for consideration.
o It could be add for install floppies. It isn't hard work.
o But if it is desirable, It might better for pc console driver to add
loading keymap function. This enable better install environment for
those who uses non-US keyboard like above.
Once someone mentions that slim-up wscons(4) for install media, is it
really possible? Or someone working on it?
