Everybody has their preferences. I'd really like to see a second small
bootable image for just emergency calls so there would be no wait.
There's no point in forcing that kind of thing down others' throat but
that could be an optional image. If the lock is easy, I have no problem
taking it off and dialing 112 in a hurry. I'm more worried about having
to wait for my small linux computer to fully boot up while someone is
bleeding to death in my arms.
