? Really? The non-key used in most applications toskip stuff. I guess
grub-pc was written by Leonard Poettering?Every other key is ignored
in order to render the interface as unusableas humanly possible? What
rational pretext could one invent for thatobstructiveness? (No these
questions are not ire, just perplexity,more than a little of it.)

Well, at least I'll document the weirdness here, even if it's deemed
necessary to keep it secret at the interface itself.
