That may very well be true!  More importantly though, can it /serve/
those ELF binaries to netbooting clients?  ;-)

Admittedly, I've not tried this under -current, but it wasn't working
under 1.6 or 1.6.1.  And the mopcopy in -current is still broken, though
that wouldn't be so important if mopd does properly serve the ELF
version of the bootloader.
