 In mail to devel@ I've proposed limiting this mechanism to machines with
 dev keys installed, in order to manage the deployment risk I mentioned in
 the bug summary above.

 Michael has implemented a first draft of this mechanism as a patch to
 olpc-configure.  The draft does not consult external devices, and does not
 check a dev key:

 Benjamin M. Schwartz had further comments about Bitfrost P_SF_RUN

 which I believe would also be addressed by the dev key limitation, if one
 assumes that a dev key effectively turns off Bitfrost.  Other mechanisms
 to address the specific needs of developers may  be more appropriate.
