The hint to non US keyboard is *very* important.  I would love if
*every* string a user (not a hacker) has to type at the boot prompt
would work on *any* keybord according to its marking, which means only
letters (no =_/ etc.) are allowed.  A "-" might work on the numeric
keyboard but it is often even hard enough to find the '=' which
disqualifies for users who have no idea that there is something else
than their own keyboard in front of them.

This very common request could at least be made easier with "install
kde" at he boot prompt, as a kind of shortcut...

Sounds very reasonable
