Hmm now I see that this trivial case is no so trivial at all. Yet it would be 
nice to have unified sollution for GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT.

Maybe extra command especially for user interactivity? It would combine 
functionality of sleep and keystatus without need to worry about restrictions 
mentioned in previous discussion.
I know that this is somewhat redundant but it looks like it would be very hard 
for 'clean' solution.
