I wonder if YABEL could emulate SeaBIOS - that way, all the ugly bios
code could be in one place (SeaBIOS).  Currently, SeaBIOS will enter
32bit mode to do its initialization - I'm not sure if YABEL can handle

It may also be possible to compile the 32bit SeaBIOS code in native
PPC mode and only emulate the 16bit code in YABEL.

Just some random thoughts..
