[Grml] Ubuntu = poor boot-time example

Something scared me on GRML's to-do list.
Todo for grml 0.6
The reason I am "scared" is that GRML is light years beyond Ubuntu in
live booting (w/hardware detection). Ubuntu should be learning from
GRML, not vice-versa.
Ubuntu took 7 times longer to boot my workstation than Knoppix (let
alone GRML). Others report similar results,
Ubuntu developers admit their live boot stuff is a huge mess,
unmaintainable, and will be scrapped. That's what their "FasterBoot"
initiative is partly about. But GRML is already there!
I like very much GRML's pure-Debianized-Knoppix approach, which is so
much faster and better than Ubuntu's modified-Morphix-Gnoppix junk.
GRML gives all benefits of Knoppix without drawbacks in terms of Debian
