I've also been working on a similar feature for the Atomic

labeled "Developer Mode" (working title ;) ).
This is pretty clever, and maybe something we should ship in the cloud
base image too.
The price, though, is a delay at boot time -- based on
experience, the POST goes so fast in KVM that you don't get a chance to
hit a key unless there's a boot menu delay of at least a couple of
seconds. And then for cloud instances _not_ in developer mode, that's
two+ seconds of boot delay every time, for no reason.
I dunno, maybe it's worth it.
