Hello, I'm not a real programmer, but I have great respect and consideration
of the work done by the GNU group. I'm here to report a minor issue, so small
that it deserves to be addressed without argue too much. The Grub command line
invoked on boot lacks the canonical feature of erasing previous words by
<Ctrl>+<w>, while this is a minimal standard editing action always seen on
every Unix-like shell. And when someone it's going into the Grub boot menu,
probably is already in a critical situation, and deserves at least the
__standard__ editing commands for the command line (the "kill" line command,
the "erase" character command, the "literal" character command, the "refresh"
screen command, and the "word erase" command). This small lack of the "word
erase" functionality disappoints me, since GRUB is __the__ bootloader, it has
to comply with the minimal standards. I hope that someone endorses the hint,
and remedy this lack.
Have a good life to whole the team! Regards
