new OF: how can we use it?

hi guys...

don't you think it would be a great help to the success of linux on
powermac if we could make the kind of elf binary that the new open
firmware loads? 

(it would also be nice to get it to include an initial ramdisk like paul
did with the coff binary) 

we could make bootable cd's for powermac
macos wouldn't be required any more
we could net-boot

what remains to be done? is the problem well understood/documented?
