Would it be possible to include "programs" on a GRUB-floppy?
Imagine a patitioning/newfs tool (useful annyway), and a "HURD-installer".
The installer must be able to fetch a minimum HURD installation from
somewhere (insert floppy B and press RETURN...) and put it on a partition.

These programs must be able to run completely stand-alone (like SGI's sash),
and optionally return control to GRUB when finished.
