True enough, but again, the first time I did this was on a system that
didn't have any extra partitions or free space, so creating another
partition specifically to hold boot files wasn't an option (short of
dumping an entire FS, shrinking the partition to create space for
another partition, rebuilding the file system, and restoring the data.
That option just didn't really occur to me). I agree that, all other
things being equal, that would be a better way to do it.
