Haiku does not yet have 'bootman".

I run my Haiku from a physical installation. Booting it on real hardware. It has been several months now - and I want to boot the other OS I have installed on this same disk.
In order to get it working - I need to re-install the "bootman". And therein lies my problem. a) It seems that Haiku does not yet have its own 'bootman' (or equiv). b) If run from BeOS, 'bootman' refuses to access the 'Haiku' disk. c) If I start up Haiku - and attempt to run BeOS's 'bootman' binary - it puts out the following error message on the terminal.
/ROOT/beos/bin>bootman elf_resolve symbol 'VolumeNameC9Partition' resolve symbol "VolumeNameC9Partition" returned: -2147478780 runtime_loader: troubles relocating: 0x80001304 (image: bootman) /ROOT/beos/bin>
I realize that everyone is busy. And has lots of other things to work on. So - I am definatly not demanding an instant resolution.
But I would appreciate a word on whether something like 'bootman' is in the works. And if it is not to be, what the thinking for a substitute might be.
