How big is such a multi-platform image, and does it work
on all of the platforms?

Maybe we can replace all those Debian kernel flavours
(amiga, atari, bvme*, mac, 2x mvme*) with one from that,
enabling *much* faster building times, and put most of
the modules into an initrd?

The Debian Kernel people have shown interest in enabling
initrd for m68k, IIRC.

Of course, bootloader logistics will differ, but… given
that the current images are way too big anyway…
