thx. I dont grok right now why directory traversal is worse than
lookup, byut I'll take your word for it.

Lets say CDFs are Right Out 9since they need symlinks). That leaves
/boot.${MACHINE}, or /boot_${MACHINE}.  Should first-stage bootblocks
check for that *before* /boot, or after?
Before sounds safer to me; any dissenters?
