That would not be quite right either. The startups available do depend
on the platform. Some platforms might only support RAM startup because
nobody has contributed a ROM startup yet. Other platforms might have
several different RAM startups, depending on which ROM monitor is
installed on the board - exactly what hardware is already initialized
and how may vary with the ROM monitor.

Instead it may be desirable to give a stronger visual indication of
the current platform and startup, to avoid confusion. This is
something we will bear in mind as the host-side software evolves.
