Multi Boot Switch

OK, this is nothing fancy, but I'm using BerryBoot to be able to choose different OSes at boot time -- openelec for watching TV or Raspbian for running mpd or just playing around.

But I don't have or want a keyboard/mouse attached to the Pi and BerryBoot doesn't support lirc for using a remote....

I learned that you can control what OS BerryBoot uses at next reboot by writing to its /data/default or /data/runonce file.  I've been ssh'ing into the pi to do this from my laptop. So I want to hook up a switch and reset button to the GPIO header to:

                  1. select which OS to run next

                  2. do a clean shutdown & reboot

Ta-da!
