Really the only solution is fixing the firmware filesystem interface (it's missing some really important things.. sigh..) but that's too big a job for 5 supported filesystems in the time we should release the firmware (70 days ago..)
That's right, as any workaround you create now will not be available with any previously released installation media (but most of them use yaboot).

BTW: just three file systems (ext2 / fat / iso9660), as I guess, nobody would use yaboot from the two Amiga filesystems :-)
The official support list is ext2, FAT, iso9660, BSD4.4 UFS, Amiga FFS, SFS and PFS3. Okay maybe first 3 of those are deathly important, the BSD filesystemand the Amiga ones though.. the filesystem is better implemented there than on any of the others (only read and seek are missing).

Howeve half support is practically no support at all I guess :(
