Not to mention OLPC support; it would be *really* nice to be able to
use d-i to install Debian onto an XO. Of course, other things
(grub-under-OFW or just plain OFW support, jffs2 formatting support,
etc) would need to be in place as well for it to work. I haven't kept
up on the status of those things, but I know that people have been
working on them.
