[Debootloaders-silo] Bug#507802: silo: Lacks boot-time help

Package: silo
Version: 1.4.13-1
Severity: wishlist

Splack (Slackware for SPARC) has a section in silo.conf reading

image="cat /boot/silo.conf"

Having this makes it easier to see what kernels are available when 
booting, e.g. because an upgraded kernel crashes.

Similarly, a help section showing the commands that SILO obeys- in 
particular the one to transfer control beck to ROM- would be useful.
