Bad hack, but I'm relying on it to have a dual slice install on my
remote server.
No console access is available to me: playing with boot0cfg -s is my way
to perform upgrades, and sometimes recovery. 

Now, if anyone could suggest an alternative that'd work without 'hitting
something when prompted by a menu' thing, i'd gladly follow advice.
(ISTR trying to use nextboot(8) but assumed back then that it was badly
broken and unusable)

Killing legacy is good, /most/ of the times.
