Right, I felt it hard to explain the direction I'd like to take on
this list.  So I have implemented the core functionality because that
definitely has to be right.

More features.

In my opinion it is not clean enough and does not integrate with GRUB
like I would like it to.  And Vladimir's patch was way too hard to
maintain when I started working on this a week ago.

It's more flexible, cleaner and easier to maintain.

It's work in progress.

Right, but I have asked Vladimir several times for a discussion on
this mailinglist about what the features are.  That discussion did not
properly take place yet.

What do you mean with the kernel is bloated?  My patch moves a lot of
responsibility to commands.  I would say it is less bloated.
