Yes, I thought about this before, actually that was my first
idea: create loader.rc.old only once, if it doesn't exist.
But there's a slight problem here: I don't like it because
once you remove the loader.rc.old, the next install will
create it again.
Actually, I like the John's idea of putting this under the
NOFORTH knob's control a lot better.
