Actually for QEMU there is no default localized keymap. This is desirable
because it allows VNC to activate its raw scancode extension which is more
reliable than passing translated X11 key symbols.

I guess there's a chance that Xen might secretly pass a '-k' arg anyway,
but hopefully it doesn't...
