I think that's the best option. We generally don't change a program's 
behaviour unless it's a blatant bug. Apparently the kbd behaviour is 
intentionally so we'll just have to live with it (from a book's perspective).

The kbd patch you posted earlier is on ftp.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs-patches/ 
now until we've made the upgrade to kbd-1.08 in the book.

I dare to say pretty much nobody. Not enough to take into consideration.
