Unless I'm mistaken, there are have been raised other GRUB issues
regarding accessibility which need to be addressed, such as:

- It should be possible to choose a kernel image to boot via "alias" or
"name" rather than full-screen with cursor keys. The "title" keyword
doesn't qualify for that -- it's too long.

For the longer term, having a "beep-when-ready" keyword in grub.conf
rather than ^G hacks would also be nice.
