 Please allow me to suggest an alternate -- arguably better --
 possibility that I have in mind.  First, the bootx64.efi could
 initialize the local disks.  Then, it would look into the config file.
 If an option to disable network init is passed, then no network init
 is performed.  Otherwise, the network is initialized.  Since it's
 never the case that the boot menu is generated by performing any
 network-related actions, this approach is sound.  It would also
 conservatively preserve the old behaviour for all old configurations.
 If this approach is found to be amenable, I could make myself
 available to implement it.
