Actually, that's not at all the case, if anything else it's the total
I've had a pretty specific view of where I wanted to take syslinux -- in
particular, I wanted it to be *easily* extensible, using clear and
reasonable APIs, and support dynamic kernel configuration; pretty much
the goals of my old Genesis project translated onto an existing
codebase. It's taken a *lot* longer than I have wanted to (especially
since the mostly-orthogonal klibc project is also a big part of that),
and although it's getting close to "being there", it's not clear it's
going to be used.
If there isn't a market for this, then I don't want to spend more late
nights hacking on it, and spend my time on something more productive.
