Dear George,

I think the initial ramdisk should rather take a "maximal" view
of busybox features, so as to serve as a debug tool.
The idea is that when a proper root filesystem is mounted, we ought
to be able to get rid of the initial ramdisk with the pivot_root command
- and then the space used by ramdisk is reclaimed.
Whereas a nasty missing feature CAN matter a lot when you need it,
and doesn't take that much space anyway, really.
I mean, you were willing to sacrifice 2MB permanently to WinCE
- why not sacrifice 400kB temporarily to a more featureful busybox?
