As a usability improvement, it would be nice if the plymouth would tell the user that their caps lock key is on while prompting for their encryption passphrase.

Hi, I don't even have a capslock light working at that stage :/


I have hand tremors and its very difficult for me to enter my password with out a capslock symbol or light :S

Especially on the laptop keyboard I accidentally hit the capslock key and mess up all password attempts after that. Any indication (either on screen or with the LED) would be very much appreciated!
