Now, a host-OS *booter* is very different from a host-OS *installer* -- such
a booter would be perfectly welcome, even in the NetBSD distribution tree!
All of amiga, i386, and mac68k have such booters to allow bootstrapping a
kernel (possibly with sysinst) from the OS's that typically ship with these
platforms. mac68k currently requires use of such a booter, though, which is
an unfortunate temporary situation....
