On a dual-boot system, the need for and the optimal duration of a 
timeout are higher than on a dedicated, single-OS machine.

There's probably no unique solution to fit all real situations, so the 
installer must take that into account.

Also, the "secret handshake" idea is bad. Just to mention "press X to do 
Y" doesn't hurt anything and reduces user frustration tremendously.
