yeah but why do it this way. With the openbios guys, we've ended up 
splitting the work: linuxbios does the cruft, openbios does the forth 
stuff. IF uboot wants that command interpreter, why not combine forces and 
make the CLI a payload, and linuxbios sucks in all that good u-boot cpu 

seems like we'd get twice as far.
