Liam, does UEFI being proprietary and undocumented mean that Native 
Oberon or A2 on contemporary machines is impossible without Herculean 
reverse engineering?  Even if UEFI is navigated, the backdoor problem 
remains.  Another motivation to put Oberon on the Skulski machines?

Andreas suggested RISC-V.  Can it also have a backdoor?
