It should default to infinite, leaving users who want it to choose what suits
them best. Not too many things irritate me more than having the phone or some
other interruption while installing, and having the screen turn black before
I can turn the too short delay to something I can tolerate or make sure the
mouse &/or keyboard actually work.
