mm only knows about things that are built and installed through 
src/etc/Makefile. It would be possible to add other Makefiles to that 
mix, but what I want to be very careful NOT to do is to give mm a bunch 
of "special knowledge" about various files in the system because that 
becomes very hard to keep up to date, deal with upgrades across 
milestones, etc.

That said, I think that the issue of mm updating loader.rc has come up 
in the past, and it was vetoed by people who understand the loader stuff 
a lot better than I do.
