grub-ieee1275 is a powerful and effective bootloader for powerpc
machines. It is significantly more flexible at runtime than yaboot, and
provides a user experience more roughly comparable with installs on i386
and amd64 machines.
Please have debian-installer on powerpc default to grub-ieee1275
instead of yaboot, not only in expert mode but also default mode.
yaboot is pretty much dead upstream (last release is from 2011) and it
is unusable on some arches or setup (#719479, #495930, #697813,
