To replace a hard drive in a laptop you need to open up at least one
screw. If you don't seal your screws and let people open up your laptop,
you've got a problem anyway. Everyone can read your libreboot rom and
reflash another rom, e.g. one that logs your passphrase somewhere. So
that's dangerous anyway.

So, I'll keep the option in there.
