I think that's pretty unfair.  We're clearly in the middle of a transition
away from the El Torito boot method (see what Hubert just committed to
the Makefiles to build release CDs with makefs) but the work isn't finished
yet, and the pace is going to have to accellerate if releng is to adapt
the autobuild system to use it in time for 4.0.
