Comment(by wmb at firmworks.com):

 Please do take it on.

 Be warned - removing the word "menu" risks either:

 a) Removing other words defined in the same file that might in fact be
 used by the graphics infrastructure for pretty boot, or

 b) Requiring the use of olpc-model-specific ifdefs in common code, a
 practice that I usually avoid.

 In my opinion, this is a "not worth the effort and risk" item.  The
 workaround is simple - don't type "menu".  I a system with as many
 commands as OFW, there are probably dozens of other things you could type
 that wouldn't quite do what you want across platforms, so why single out
 this one?

 That said, if you want to undertake the "fix" and are willing to do the
 testing to ensure that it doesn't have unintended side effects, be my
