Well, ideally i believe it would be the responsability of the kernel package
to set that up, but this is probably not going to happen until we get ride of
kernel-package or rewrite it to some extent.
Now, i installed yaird, and the only modification i had to do to my
/etc/kernel-img.conf was to set the mkinitrd-hook, or whatever this one was
called to point to yaird instead of mkinitrd, and it worked out of the box,
and since a solution using this would use an automatically replacement
solution, i think there should be no major problem for yaird at least, not
sure about initramfs-tools though.
