I think that makes perfect sense.

For easy install on lower memory machines one options might be to have
the kernel use a compressed miniroot directly from a floppy or other
device. Would limit the compressed filesystem size to a floppy disk,
but that should be enough.

Actually, it would probably help somewhat to have a compressed in
memory filesystem for the current setup :)
