I am open to suggestions on exactly what you want things to like like for
woody.  With the latest busybox, all symlinks are relative one.  Therefore, I
was thinking I would just create the normal hierarchy, but instead of under /
put everything under /usr/lib/busybox.  Sound agreeable?  So you could simply
extract /usr/lib/busybox from busybox.#.deb and mv /usr/lib/busybox/* to the
target.  All the other junk (docs, manpages, etc) would be ignored.  Does this
sound agreeable?
