FWIW, removing MULTI_KBOARD does not entail removing MSDOS support: it
just requires a bit more effort to update the MSDOS code.  The problem
is that Dan should have made this effort (even if he can't test it
because the MSDOS port currently doesn't build/work), unless someone
else (i.e. Eli) had agreed to do it, or unless we had decided to drop
the MSDOS port (which I'd favor, but not enough to impose it on Eli).

So Dan, rather than revert your removal of MULTI_KBOARD, could you do
a best-effort update of the MSDOS code to adapt it to the new "always
multi kbd" code?
