If you are arguing that the manual is incomplete or inaccurate, I
could agree, but that's a different/separate issue, I'm sure.  Fixing
the docs is easy.

I just asked that question because my reading of the code is that this
is not supported.  Maybe I'm misreading: keyboard.c:read_char is not
for the faint at heart.

By making a menu, I presume.
