[arch-releng] /usr/bin/km, loadkeys and dumpkeys

While figuring out http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/13374,
I was inspecting /usr/bin/km, it does "loadkeys" from the kbd package
to load the keyboard table.
But unfortunately it looks to me you can't just get the name of that
table afterwards (eg with dumpkeys), you can only get the table itself
from the kernel.

I am correct or am I missing something?

How will we fix this, let km export an environment variable which we
pull in the installer?
Who maintains the "km" tool? it is not included in any package.
