some disscussion about that:

It will be very nice to have legacy installed mfsbsd in some reserved
space in swap (like for kenel dumps)

and having, except single user mode, another option in boot promt:
mfsbsd mode.
and 'nextboot --mfsbsd' to set remotely that boot option.

also be very very nice to have behaviour which loads mfsbsd in case of
unproper unmount. Now it is promt to enter #/bin/sh path.
Having mfsbsd installed allow remotely complete/correct all failed
operations that cause normal loading.

also AUTO booting mfsbsd in all cases that crash current system:
panic, deadlock os something else, will allow to analise many things
remotely and save, in some cases, many many time =)
