Hi, Dan

Thank you for committing a patch.

I confirmed that I can use jp106 keyboard on HVM domain with virt-install
and Error(KeyError: 'keymap') didn't happen with virt-manager.
when I used latest patch(changeset 117).

We also think it's automatically pick the correct keymap based on the X 
So, I intend to inquire into how to pick the correct keymap by Python.
Please tell me how to pick the correct keymap by Python. if you know it.

Tomohiro Takahashi.
