in fact I may let linux do the splash screen anyway -- all other
options are looking painful.

Remember the original linuxbios slogan? "Let Linux do it".

One thing I've noticed is that, having dropped Linux as a primary
payload, we are recreating lots of code for things linux can already

Once we start to implement IPV6 in a payload, we need to stop and
think hard about what we are doing.
