I was referring to the new kernel parameter supposed to be used and that 
applications, admins and users a like should be using /etc/vconsole.conf 
instead of /etc/sysconfig/i18n

Seriously Lennart how many users do you think are aware of that now when 
we have barely manage to go through localization bugs in F18 which may 
or my not be a direct result of this "next to zero effect on Fedora" 
that this is the way to go?
