BiCon is almost ready for an initial release. Just that I've got
a bug in bconsole to fix before release. I'm working on it.
* I can't see where the name abicon comes from?
* bin/bicon should be removed and the functionality should be
added to the abicon. I try to do this too.
* In the long run I like bicon to install the keymaps and fonts
in the distros location for these. Under Fedora it's somewhere
* We better update the keymaps and send them upstream to the
kbd maintainers. The Persian maps needs to be updated before
