    It's not going to happen. Too many boot loaders make assumptions about
    ELF files which aren't really compatible; the entry conditions for an
    ELF from a boot loader are pretty ill-defined, so I think this is a bad
    idea.

    At the very least, it shouldn't present the ELF magic number IMNSHO.
