I tried to have a look at libplymouth, and if I'm correct, it's not 
possible to listen and get events for compose keys, so no way to get 
something like Control+C. As Dimitri told, it's been quite some years we 
are doing that in ubuntu, and that's the reason why we show a message to 
ensure the user is aware about that key (and that's why this patch is 
doing). Is it good for you this way?
