What we need is firmware-independant support.  I can live with the PXE-on-BIOS
hack if it's useful, but what we're supposed to have is a driver framework like
the one in GRUB Legacy, not a stub for each firmware type.

Reliing on firmware is problematic, because it's usually proprietary and buggy,
we shouldn't do it if it can be avoided.

  still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
