Correct. But quik is for so-called "old-world" machines whereas yaboot
is for "newworld" ones, and grub-ieee1275 is still pretty new: I have
played with GRUB for some years but have so far failed to make GRUB2
(that the ieee1275 variant is part of) work on Apple PowerPCs.

I still need yaboot on some of my machines. I'll have a look at the
package and consider adopting it.
