Sounds very appealing.

There's a UEFI-based development that puts 9P2000 inside the modern
BIOS - excuse the imprecise language: I played with it and my
ignorance caused me to get frustrated before I could accomplish
anything with it. I'll dig up a github reference if anyone asks. I
found it while searching for something quite different.

I never understood why USB receives so much attention (but thanks to
all those who valiantly tried to tame that wild beast!). What does it
do that PoE doesn't do infinitely better?

What I would want from such a tool is its availability within
educational institutions so we stop teaching greed technology to
learners and lower the knowledge entry bar that Intel and Microsoft -
and their allies - have created (that, I make no apologies for, is
Politics, the Politics of Technological Domination).
