OK, I retry with a shorter boolean expression: The original problem is that we
can't boot the USB flash drive on a Mac. Do we agree on that?

Turning a useful contribution into an argumentum ad personam is quite lousy.
And words like "always" are *always* wrong in this context.

We need a solution *now*. While I prefer fixing issues, workarounds as short-
term solutions are common practice. Take a look at another real world example:
the driver blacklist in Firefox because of the crashy Linux OpenGL drivers,
Mozilla developers are not GPU driver developers and they will happily remove
the blacklist as soon as the Linux drivers shape up.
I will also gladly remove this hook as soon as we get a bootloader in Debian
Live that smoothly works on the whole range of devices we need (DVD ISO,
portable storage media on BIOS, on EFI, ...) but hacking bootloader code is
not in my range of interest and knowledge.
I help fixing problems whenever I can. Last time I checked, I already
contributed to more than 20 OSS projects, with my time and knowledge and also
by financial contribution. I also fixed bugs in live-boot, just in case you
But it's always nice talking to you.
