Doesn't seem to exist? A search for "mulitboot" doesn't seem to throw up
the one you meant either.

I agree. There have also been occasions where people doing
disaggregation have wanted to start multiple initial domains, requiring
additional modules at load time. I don't think being generic and
extensible is costing too much here.
