Um, this should be done by replacing a "choice" in the config
with multiple booleans, so it builds several vgabios binaries.

I thought about implementing this the very moment I tried to
build my first seabios with vgabios enabled, but was distracted
by something else and now you say you already have something
almost ready... ;)

Anyway, I can confirm that seaVGAbios works quite well so
far, except the usual issue with Linux VESA driver (which
present with bochs vgabios too).  So using seabios for all
this stuff appears to be a good idea.

Thank you all for the great work!
