  Hi Allison:

Something I'd like to see is Jockey learning what's available in LBM 
that can help your hardware improve.  I'll use a real-world example.  A 
user has some brand new sandy bridge ethernet hardware on their 
motherboard.  They install Maverick and have support for their hardware 
in the Maverick kernel from some backported patches.  There happens to 
also be support however in LBM for a full backport from 2.6.36 for that 
ethernet driver.

In a scenario like this I think it would make sense for Jockey to offer 
on a 2nd or 3rd boot offer some information about the LBM driver and why 
it might be beneficial.
