Filo does need a home and it can run outside of etherboot
So I would concede that is ok to have a home for it.
Although...sniff I do like it in etherboot;)

First of all, we didn't say we don't want choice. Actually we want more,
including the choice of not having some choices.
The problems of FILO/Etherboot are:
1. Some people have hard time building Etherboot.
2. Some people don't want the feature provided by
Etherboot, they are satisfied by FILO itself.
3. FILO (as FILO itself) does not have an official
host. If we want to continue maintain FILO to serve
people in 1. and 2., we have to put it somewhere.
If you want FILO as FILO+Etherboot, why don't you get it from etherboot
