    Just finished reboot to custom scripted-recovery feature, can be used for all kinds of automated routines. Might be one of the cooler features so far. Lookin rough at the moment but doesn't need to be fancy.

    Edit: Most of the quirks have been worked out, though it's hard to know what's still buggy on other systems. Feedback, anyone?
