Ok, I won't care. I do care about something, however : is there a
distribution of miBoot in a readable archive format (there seem to be no
stuffit free implementation) ? Is there a license for it ? Is the source
code available ? I can't find this on http://penguinppc.org/~benh/,
which seems to be the home.

Debian woody doesn't seem to contain anything of this, either.

I don't think so. The piece of code I'm speaking about is just keeping
udebs for wrong subarches from being installed. It'd only help with the
boot loader.
