On news68k, this value was not well-considered ;-)
At the first time I wrote bootloader for (a.out) news68k,
it did not work at all, because the entry address of
the kernel was 0x400. a.out header does not contain
text address and aout_exec() loads text data from
the entry address. Then I just moved the entry address
(==start() in locore.s) to 0x0 (==text start).
