Well, you'd have to update the append line in rqtxt.cfg as well to make
that work without the "console=...".  It is not inherited from txt.cfg.

It sure would be nice if the installer menues were somewhat easier to
work with over a serial console, but I must admit that I don't have any
suggestion on how to do that...  If there just were some way to pick up
the console settings from the boot loader, but I don't think there are?
