And I repeat, a C-based init is a far better option in this scenario.
There are far less packages to build, it's notably quicker, it works on
more architectures and you have a smaller initramfs.
Also, if you're going to do investigating into cloop and devmapper, if
my voice means anything, I request that you *not* put it into x86/trunk.
Investigate it in a separate branch, please.
Lastly, if the livecd team is willing to have me back, I'd like to say
that I have just enough time to help with that project once again. I
won't try to get involved in the other projects, but I would be happy to
continue working with livecd.
