The whole console layout database needs to be re-synched with the xorg
one (People have stopped submitting patches to kbd every time they fix
an xkeyboard-config bug. After several years of such the disconnect is
getting huge).

The whole console font set needs to be dumped and the console taught
to use generic truetype/opentype fonts (likewise, bugs are fixed in
modern fonts but not legacy console fonts, plus legacy fonts are
limited to 256 glyphs so each time someone gets to add a glyph for a
language he breaks another one. A year ago I've asked volunteers to
look at console fonts. So far no one answered).

For some reason switching to the console displays an @ nowadays login
does not work as a result right now.

Can't login, broken display and buggy keyboard layouts. I don't see
how the situation could be worse (but I'm sure next month rawhide will
show me).
