for what I want to do anyway, I'll throw that optional stop on error line.

Is there a replacement for read?  I mean, we could simply try to read in a
single key.  (I dont konw of any program that does that).

I was talking on irc, what about /etc/sysconfig/bootconfig?

localnet and halt should have no problems,  I guess if it fails to
unmount, then it'll still be readwriteable [except it turns it into
readonly after],  swap shouldn't be a problem...
