While I don't disagree at all with this bit, we should be careful about
discover and coordinate with the different discover's maintainer.
I am preatty sure Daniel pushed back the ubuntu changes, but there are
a bunch of things that are not detected correctly and the algorithm
that discover use can be improved.
Also consider to grab the exception for the via driver we are doing in ubuntu.
The via driver is pretty unreliable and sometimes is better to use vesa.
Of course there are observation coming from bugs we received when defaulting
automatically to via.
The last available dish of the food you have decided to eat, will be
inevitably taken from the person in front of you.
