I'd like to hear your opinion about editing a menu entry.

I'm now writing code for editing a menu entry. Unlike GRUB Legacy, I'd 
like to edit a menu entry directly using GRUB as a screen editor rather 
than going to a command-line and going back to the menu-like interface. 
Conceptually, the interface for menu entry editing will behave like a 
subset of GNU Emacs.

Then, there is a key bind problem. In GRUB Legacy, we use 'b' to boot an 
entry and use ENTER to edit a specified command. In GRUB 2, these must 
be used to insert the character 'b' and to insert a newline or split a 
command into two, respectively. Then, how to boot the entry? I don't 
know what the right way is. Using an unusual key (such as C-c)? Or, a 
combination of keys (such as C-x b)?

What do you think?
