Description of problem:
RH9 renamed the Swedish PC keyboard map from se-latin1
to sv-latin1. This is utterly bogus, for two reasons:
1. It breaks upgrades from RH8.0 and earlier:
/etc/sysconfig/keyboard still points to se-latin1,
which no longer exists.
2. Even worse, the name prefix "sv" is simply WRONG.
My initial reaction was "what's this? Slovakia?".
The "SE" code is well-established, being used for
things like postal area codes, car bumper stickers,
and locale names.
A plain "S" was used some years ago, for area codes
and bumper stickers, but "SE" is now preferred.
"SV" is not and never has been used for any of these things.
Imagine renaming UK to UN or KI. It's that bad.
RedHat needs to undo this change. I'm struggling not to
use harsher language here.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH9.
renamed back to se... keeping the sv for legacy. both should work now.
