Now that I know about, I will use it. As I pointed out earlier, a 
current brand of broken BIOS makes it clumsy to boot from the floppy, 
and this solves a problem for me. The only people who are going to
have problems with it are people trying to secure a console -
which is a fairly unusual practice and needs special work anyway.

Stop making things so black and white; it has uses for many of
us, and causes problems for a few. Hence it should be 
documented, not anhillated.
