the unification is not the blocker per se, but not having the 'final' fs
label is, as it would require to keep compatibility and making us need
to support this 'intermediate' state until wheezy+1 which i obviously
want to avoid.
now that persistency is done properly, i'd like to use 'persistence' as
the fs label for any persistency mode (be it partition, custom, or else;
and the mode being defined by the config file in it). that's the last
state of the discussion we had some time ago.

great, looking forward to that.

ack, and agreed on everything anonym said.

eventhough i don't see much merits in snapshots since we're having
custom mounts in place now, i wouldn't per se be against having a
seconday persistence mode in the code. however, since nobody showed
initiative of updating the snapshot code for that, i'm for dropping it too.
i'll look into that later today and upload to experimental, it would be
nice if you and anonym could then give some feedback/testing whetever i
haven't broken it too much :)
