I dropped it in the process of splitting up the config files since
supporting it was looking to add a lot of extra complexity. Also since
I'd never considered the use case for it to be compelling -- with or
without the file you still have to manually modify the syslinux
configuration to enable serial console.

If it can be added back without seriously complicating things, that'd be
fine. I do think that vesamenu is right out for serial console, but have
not actually checked that.
