usplash_write can't handle user input. The upstream version of usplash 
has patches applied (which I wrote) that adds user input support, the 
corresponding bug for Debians version of usplash is #383249. Once it is 
fixed, usplash input would be easy to add (I already have it running on 
my laptop using a custom built usplash).
