But how would you test stuff without putting it on either floppies, or at
least virtual floppies (e.g. vmware, uml...)? I mean, we do the reduction
when we build the floppy images... One way would be to skip reducing when
building the demo tree, so you'd have full libs when doing make demo, but
before creating the initrd, the libs *must* be reduced!
