Alternate key combination for menu

Alternate key combination for menu
Normally you select your menu item and press enter or press its shortcut key for it to load.

Is there a way to have a secondary shortcut key to run another script/image?
In my scenario I am trying to run (A)rchlinux but would like ctrl+A to run a simple configuration script.
The configuration script would set settings like video card driver, default user account, etc...

I do not want ctrl+A to be seen just to keep my menu's short and simple.

I figure what I would like, maybe:
1) alternate key possible for each menu item?
ie. item --key a arch64 --altkey ctrl+a arch64config Boot (A)rchlinux

2) if a menu item can be hidden and still work (but doesn't take up menu space).
ie item --key a arch64 Boot (A)rchlinux
ie item --hidden --key ctrl+a arch64config ArchLinux Configuration

3) if you can detect if ctrl is being pressed when the option is selected.
ie. if ctrl !pressed run image, else run image2

Anyone know if something like this is possible?

If it can't be done, I think I will put blank menu options at the bottom of the list with the shortcuts.

RE: Alternate key combination for menu
This seems like a feature request, which should probably be asked on the developer mailing-list. I don't think what you're asking for is possible with the current feature set in iPXE.
