I could be convinced. One of the things that sort of broke at one
point was netbooting of large kernels and booting off the second drive
(either of which is necessary to install to CF cards) due to bloat.
At that time the bootstrap only worked on the primary HD. I'd have to
double check that we don't make certain use cases harder, or
impossible. (eg. NetBooting a kernel with fun stuff in it.)
