It's a fantastic. My major concern was it'd be far better to
implement "UNIX grade" virsatile ROM monitor comfortable enough to run
BOOTP/DHCP/TFTPboot/NFSboot as well as SIOP SCSI. I juggled an idea
hoping the functionaly and CLI interface compatible with Digital SRM (pre
PCI age!) or DECstation REX, or just another implementation of MIPS
PMON. Since the products can swap ROM area with flush memory, it would
help to design our own ROM monitor.
