Which might as well be combined with the filetype detection so
that if a downloaded file begins with #!RedBoot it's
interpreted as a script. That would be cool.

I guess I misunderstood. I thought that the suggestion was for
the DHCP/BOOTP info to be put into script variables so that the
script (still required to be in flash) could do something like
"load $BOOTPFILE". I didn't realize that you were suggesting
that the downloaded file be interpreted as a script.
