Bug#798908: debian-cd: Please support grub menuentry shortcuts

Package: debian-cd
Version: 3.1.17
Severity: normal
User: debian-accessibility@lists.debian.org
Usertags: a11y


parse_isolinux takes care of dropping ^ from menu entries.  But it
should actually take them into account by turning the following
character into a shortcut for the entry.

Typically, on mini.iso images we have:

menuentry --hotkey=s 'Install with speech synthesis' {
    set background_color=black
    linux    /linux vga=788 speakup.synth=soft --- quiet
    initrd   /initrd.gz

so that blind people can just type s to boot the speaking version of the
installer.  This must work for EFI on CD images too.
