Ok, so, do you have any roadmap for adding floppy support to

quick allow to get cdrom support on oldworld machines ?
Code exists. Needs debugging though (read: it doesn't work).
quik should be able to get cdrom support on oldworld (modulo OF bugs).
I agree that quick seems the worthier solution compared to miboot,
haven't looked at the code of both.
It should even be possible to make a unified loader which replaces
yaboot and quik.
I'm willing to help with testing/debugging either or both of these
two projects (floppy quik and merged bootloader) on my testing Beige
G3 (I can also get occasional access to a few other types of old
Macs, if that would be helpful).
Please keep me in the loop.
