I'm happy to be involved.  What's our position?

   1. Secure Boot is bad and should not be allowed to go ahead in any form.

   2. Secure Boot could be bad so we must ensure it can be disabled if needed.

   3. Secure Boot is great, providing we have control over the keys our
      equipment recognises as valid.

My personal position is the last one.  I think Secure Boot could work well, if 
I can remove the Microsoft keys (since they're bound to be compromised sooner 
or later) and install my own, only allowing my chosen Linux kernels to boot 
and nothing else.
