7 Well, given that most of our users don't seem to be able to get the
8 priority field straight ("Waah! There's a tiny typo in an einfo
9 statement! BLOCKER!"), I'd be kind of sceptical about an easily rigged

11 for "add more pictures to bootsplash" and "add this horribly broken
12 kernel patch to g-d-s"...
