I have nothing against that.  For keyboard layouts, ideally we'd have a
unified configuration between X/console/Wayland/et al (cf. cxkb), so
that's why the XKB configuration went in HAL: note that arbitrary input
options did not, originally, go in HAL.  So I don't know how we should
solve that one.
