5 I'll claim it. I use it on my dev box to boot to ZFS root. Never took a
6 liking to GRUB. Simpler is better, and I honestly wouldn't mind if someone
7 could port FreeBSD's bootloader to Linux...
9 However, I am very time-limited, so I will defer to Hank or Peter if they
10 wish to tackle any open bugs and I'll serve as final reviewer, tester, and
