No, it was discussed at UOS  and not dropped , UEFI works, and I
added UEFI GRUB translations as well . Not sure about 16.04 LTS yet
though, there may be new hurdles hurdles to overcome. I did a quick
test run yesterday evening but somehow it seemed unbootable ("Failed
to load ldlinux.c32"), I'll need to look into it during the weekend.
Tips welcome if you know what I encountered, and also feel free to
experiment with the "script" (copy-paste commands manually in reality)
from the bzr using any xenial image as a base. I'd welcome fellow

Thanks for adding these, my script was installing the selected English
packages manually for 14.04.x releases, since otherwise Ubuntu would
complain about them even with full Finnish support installed.
