Well that's certainly easier than dracut.  I would want to add UUID and 
LABEL capabilities.

That looks like a good starting point too.  The scripts are right on the 
edge of just including in the book or creating a separate package.  My 
inclination is to put in the book for educational purposes.

A separate page with dracut without a lot of detail may be appropriate. 
  The 'About initramfs' page then would present the concepts and use 
these scripts as a vehicle for explanation.
