- support Arch Linux ARM?
- support multiple explicit locales via comma-separated list (see how i handle resolvers)
- config layout
-- need to apply defaults and annotate/document
--- is this necessary since i doc with asciidoctor now?
- how to support mdadm, lvm?
- support serverside "autoconfig"- a mechanism to let servers automatically generate xml build configs. e.g.:
	kernel ... aif_url="https://build.domain.tld/aif-ng.php" auto=yes
  would yield the *client* sending info via URL params (actually, this might be better as a JSON POST, since we already have a way to generate JSON. sort of.),
		e.g. https://build.domain.tld/aif-ng.php?disk[]=sda&disk[]=sdb&disk[sda]=300GB&disk[sdb]=500GB (can have it so that the autoconfig is only supported clientside if pyyaml is installed)
  or something like that.
- parser: make sure to use https://mikeknoop.com/lxml-xxe-exploit/ fix
- convert use of confobj or whatever to maybe be suitable to use webFetch instead. LOTS of duplicated code there.
- can i install packages the way pacstrap does, without a chroot? i still need to do it, unfortunately, for setting up efibootmgr etc. but..:
	pacman -r /mnt/aif -Sy base --cachedir=/mnt/aif/var/cache/pacman/pkg --noconfirm
	/dev/sda2 on /mnt/aif type ext4 (rw,relatime,data=ordered)
	/dev/sda1 on /mnt/aif/boot type vfat (rw,relatime,fmask=0022,dmask=0022,codepage=437,iocharset=iso8859-1,shortname=mixed,errors=remount-ro)
	proc on /mnt/aif/proc type proc (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
	sys on /mnt/aif/sys type sysfs (ro,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
	efivarfs on /mnt/aif/sys/firmware/efi/efivars type efivarfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
	udev on /mnt/aif/dev type devtmpfs (rw,nosuid,relatime,size=2012384k,nr_inodes=503096,mode=755)
	devpts on /mnt/aif/dev/pts type devpts (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,gid=5,mode=620,ptmxmode=000)
	shm on /mnt/aif/dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime)
	run on /mnt/aif/run type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,mode=755)
	tmp on /mnt/aif/tmp type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)

DOCUMENTATION: aif-config.py (and note sample json as well)

for network configuration, add in support for using a device's MAC address instead of interface name

also create:
-create boot media with bdisk since default arch doesn't even have python 3
-- this is.. sort of? done. but iPXE/mini build is failing, need to investigate why
-- i tihnk i fixed iPXE but i need to generate another one once 1.5 is released
