I wonder why people like to update their embedded systems by taking card
out, completely overwriting it with new data and putting card back in.
No wonder that it's slow, complex & heedlessly wears out your flash.

If I do this in my BBB I would get myself pissed very soon because of
the effort required. I never bothered to netboot too, because I wanted
to test it in insecure network conditions.
I mean, I don't remember a case where I needed to take HDD to another
machine for upgrade. The issue where it's not practical to compile
something locally is completely unrelated with this, too.
