Agreed. Sounds like the best way of balancing the features against the
problems it causes with people leaving it enabled.

Well, it's not the only way of entering text (Bluetooth or USB
keyboard; SSH), nor the sole recovery option. If a system's so borked
that the virtual keyboard doesn't work this change would only impact
the power user if:

    * They otherwise had enabled Red Pill in expectation of needing
    * They had *not* installed SSH (or had no network access)
    * They had no USB or Bluetooth keyboard/adapter
    * They were unable to refllash.
    * Installing one or more packages would suffice to fix it.

In this circumstance, I'm happy to say "reflash" ;-)
