re: ofwboot versions and upgrading

Indeed, but this machine is remote so I wanted to avoid losing.
yeah - i understand that desire. i think it is low.
It would be nice to backport the ofwboot changes to netbsd-3 so that
being up-to-date on netbsd-3 was sufficient to boot netbsd-4 kernels.
But I realize that's both work and risk of instability on netbsd-3, and
that the standard update method is to boot a cd that updates the boot
i think it's probably a non-issue. if you wanted to work on this
it's probably just fine to do so.
