I'm a fan (in concept) of a key combination, but my gut says its not
very necessary.

The last time I got very involved with a server/client scripting setup
(admittedly with gPXE), one of the problems I had was that, using
authenticated menus, you'd constantly see credentials being thrown
around in the GETs that were on lines above the initrds and kernels. A
scriptable clearscreen command handles that quite nicely :)

Regardless, I'm always a fan of simple, new features.
