Ok, I just said 3 seconds as an arbitrary compromise.  I have no trouble
with longer delays.  :)

However, Jesse says that he doesn't think our arguments will change
this.  It would be great if one could actually edit grub.conf duuring
installation--don't know how trivial or non-trivial that is.

The trouble is, as I like to quote here, when making things idiot proof,
you can't, as nature will always build a better idiot.
