I agree that it seems to start to look like too much of a code
duplication, FWIW, my main intention with adding input support to PBL
was to allow for more interactivity in hang() handler(like being able
to send a very primitive command to reset the board, instead of
relying on external reset circuitry). I am not sure how this can be
improved, so if you have any ideas of how to better introduce the same
functionality I'll be happy to help on implementing it.
