	If you really look close, Steve is right in his concern about
the meaning of "supporting more than one" and "supporting more than
this". But in this context, we shouldn't have any misunderstanding
(for pt_BR).

	Just for the record, I'm changing the D-I Manual and related
translations to use "gerenciador de inicialização" when we are
speaking about "bootloader", instead of "gerenciador de partida",
which is used by pt_PT. ;)
