Well, gee, you know, maybe the boot loader can be modified to be smart
about things. After all, we have the source code to it. E.g. if there is
more than one OS, show the menu, otherwise don't. As such, a system
running only Fedora wouldn't show any menu unless you press the secret
'b' key or whatever. And sure, people can knock themselves out
configuring how it works.
