I'm sure that facility would be appreciated. In the instance where I
had an overiding sd0, if I hadn't of had grub, I would have had to
recompile the kernel. Specifying the boot parameter took all of 2 mins,
albeit a recompile doesn't take horribly long but it could be rather
inconvenient if time is of the essence.
