Boots on?
We'll need to define a set of known-tested/supported systems, at least

Stay tuned.
I'm going to be incommunicado for about a week while I move to
Mountain View, but I only have one bug[*] keeping me from being able
to boot off of an EFS partition, etc.  That should make things a lot

[*] Yes, it's embarrassingly true: I still can't get indirect extents
right.  I'll check my code in tomorrow, in case someone smarter than
me wants to take a crack at it.
