That's a nice idea.

I think interesting suggestions for panic room go from debugging
(SerialICE, gdb) to monitor (console menu for file transfer and
flashing) and beyond.

For board porters it's definately most useful to get debugging. For
production use maybe monitor mode is more useful. Or even something
like a RAM scrubber as a simple failsafe?

I guess we don't want to limit ourselves to just one choice here.
