Title:Keyboard interface.
Description:It has been said that because UBoot is not designed as a normal interface to the user and can be used over serial then things such a history buffer and being able to pause display are not needed.

However, we use UBoot at the keyboard, with a normnal bootup and VGA output. I suggest that UBoot keep a history buffer, make use of "up cursor" instead of printing funny characters and saying things like INTERRUPT. :-? Command tab completion could also be useful. A simple mouse cursor and "scroll bar" would also make UBoot more shell like. Perhaps like the OS4 minishell? ;-)

Some router telnet interfaces are easy to use and put UBoot to shame! It could take an example from routers with a good CLI.
