Couldn't Qt/Embedded be used for this purpose? We'd have to find a way to
prevent a conflict with the regular Qt/X11, but other than that it would seem
to be the perfect match for a lightweight RHGB-type solution (i.e. one which
doesn't require starting up X early) to me.
Or GTK/directfb... but you don't really need or want a full-blown
toolkit there, either way. The main thing is to handle keyboard input in
an acceptable way, and display some feedback that resembles a password
entry. krh was muttering about a xkb-to-console-keymap converter this
morning, as a possible solution to the keyboard layout problem.
