Right, it's been fully converted to sysfs.  Just for reference, the 
resultant sysfs tree looks something like:

/sys |
			 |- BootNext-xxxx-xxx-x-x-x-x *
			 |- BootCurrent-xxxxxx-x-x-x-x *
			 |- ConOut-xxxx-x-x-x-x-x-x-*
			 |- del_var
			 |- new_var 

where xxxx-x-x-x-x-x is the GUID.

Yes, I plan to consolidate as much of the common code as possible soon.
