I added 256MB of swap. It's dog slow, but it works.

A busybox with everything enabled (including
swapon, vi, chroot, ifconfig, route, telnet, etc.).
Maybe fdisk, mkfs and fsck for those who don't have a USB CF reader.
I would personally add zsh and screen if there were space.
Maybe telnetd (but not running by default)?

PS: don't forget NFS client and VFAT support in the kernel.
Maybe nfs server and reiserfs as modules to be distributed
as a separate tarball (not minimal ramdisk).

PPS: I'm currently making a "not so minimal" debian image,
that I hope to fit in say 210MB of CF.
If you have suggestions for packages to include, pray tell.
