Escape should always be Cancel

Bug Description

Binary package hint: base-installer

I just installed feisty 7.04
I noticed that the hotkey (Alt+key) one has to press for Cancel changes between dialogs.
In most of the "main" dialogs (i.e. the one titled "where are you?" it's C&ancel and &Continue, but for example in the dialog to set the time it's &Cancel

Not a high severity bug, but it can be confusing for people who don't want to use the mouse or can't (repetitive stress syndrome).
One idea might be that pressing Escape always equates to clicking on the Cancel button, this way there would be no need of a hotkey

Should be consistently &Cancel (and &Forward etc.) now, but you're right that Escape should be made to work.
