Is this your take at becoming the reference distro for development
and lightweight-footprint testing of development for illumos-gate? ;)

I am not sure if the distro for such dev/test purposes (or a server)

If so, does it also support boot environments and perhaps networked

to initialize racks of servers or new test VMs with a new kernel build -
now that would be a useful feature for the purpose.
