Hi all,

My testing of this text-mode-menu has not gone extremely well.  But I
have been using the time to consolidate OBI code further into more
common functions which provide more error checking, and logging.  I have
used some of the code from ISOmaker (which is well tested and I have
used countless times, and improved over time) to re-implement things
that I had done in OBI in an earlier time when my understanding of the
chroot and shell scripting was much less than it is now.

So currently I am refining OBI further.  Nio, if you want to send me a
simple way you boot into a terminal logged in, and then launch x on the
appropriate tty I would appreciate your added input here.  I have done
these things in a few ways, but do not have a completely adequate
solution in place (so I have reverted to starting X by default)

Once I have tweaked the last bits (I have been testing and tweaking the
code a lot recently) to fully adapt things, and make sure everything is
using the new functions properly I will upload the ISO.

Sorry this has taken so long, but I've needed to do this for a while, to
make OBI more stable.  I have found various areas where there were bugs
hidden by a lack of error checking.

I am explicitly sending more variables to functions to avoid strange
bleed over stuff...

I will keep you all posted
