Yes, supporting building of images in steps, exploiting the "stackable fs"
feature of live-initramfs.
Maybe integrating this with our present recursive filelists.
Building a standard image includes the "minimal" list, so this image could
require 2 fs, a minimal and the standard, which in aufs view could be the
differences between minimal build and standard build.
So the minimal would be bootstrapped and a fs (squashfs, e.g.) will be
generated, then loop mounted, unioned with a tmpdir and the "standard" phase
(packages installation) will be performed. Then the tmpdir will become
another fs. In this example we will have at boot 2 squashfs to be used in the
union of aufs as read-only.
More steps for deeper packages lists.
I could elaborate better if needed. (worktime now)
