No. Before, you had to type out the whole command line, including
root=/dev/ram0, or d-i would panic during the boot process. Now, you
only need to change the root device from /dev/sda2 to /dev/ram0. This
bug is about making this obsolete as well.

No. The built-in command line is only used by PReP systems.

No. I never got a message from Josh. And looking through the
changelog, I don't see anything that would affect powerpc.
