I think this should happen in CBFS. The proposal is basically a
special case symlink. It would be nice to have generic symlinks
Another special case solution yet still CBFS-centered could be to
search for wildcard option ROMs at runtime. (V and D below are
hexits, while x is a literal x.)
6 through 9 may be debatable, but I'm not neccessarily against them!
