 After seeing a few bugs marked "invalid" when people are trying to boot
 the wrong partition with bootman, it occurred to me a better solution
 would be to make bootman a bit more intelligent at finding which
 partitions should be booted.

 For example, new versions of windows often have a small boot partition
 which should be selected, which bootman could try to detect. It would also
 be nice if we could check if there's already something like GRUB installed
 (and maybe even read its configuration).

 Low priority enhancement, but the fewer people we scare about not being
 able to boot into their old system again, the better :)
