I like the idea of using Coreboot on the UEFI side — if the most
actively used TianoCore platform is CorebootPkg instead of OvmfPkg, that
makes it a lot easier for people using *real* hardware with Coreboot to
And it helps to dispel the stupid misconception in some quarters that
Coreboot *competes* with UEFI and thus cannot possibly be supported
because helping something that competes with UEFI would be bad.

For my part I want to get to the point where the default firmware
shipped with qemu can be OVMF. We have SeaBIOS-as-CSM working, which was
one of the biggest barriers. There are a few more things (like NV
variable storage, in particular) that I need to fix before I can
actually make that suggestion with a straight face though...
