Defining such a combination could be an option too. I tried to implement
the mechanism I proposed, but had multiple problems:
* Shepherd is using /dev/console as an output and some messages are
polluting the help line displayed at the bottom of the screen. I'm not
sure how to solve it.
Shepherd could poll /dev/log so that once syslog is available it stops
* Guile-newt functions "newt-set-help-callback" and
"add-component-callback" seem to be tripping over each other and I'm
having a hard time trying to understand why.
Regardless of this keyboard layout issue, having a help menu for the
installer could be useful to display the shortcuts for instance.
