I would think that living with existing monitors is a GREAT thing. I
don't want to have to port both RTEMS and a RTEMSmon. I even shudder at
the prospect of having to program bus bridges, such as Motorola's Eagle
chips. And I am sure that OAR does not want to get into this business
either. This is not to say that there isn't room for some form of
standard boot procedure. But I think you should leave it up to the end
users to decide whether they want to coexist with the existing monitors,
or replace them with their own. Perhaps this My Right Boot could be a
semi-supported option for those who want it or need it.
