  Hmmm... yeah... it seems "less then elegant" at first glance, but has
the distinct advantage of actually working.  :-)  And you're right in
that getting us a better boot loader, independent of location (disk or
flash) would be nice no matter what.  My only suggestion: Don't be
afraid to scrap large parts of code from GRUB if needed.  Remember the
maxim, "Be prepared to write every program at least twice."  :-)
