As Joey pointed out, just because squashfs exists doesn't mean that
people no longer use cramfs.

Can you give a good reason for removing cramfsprogs?  Unless I hear a
*good* reason, I object to this change.

As you point out, the mips d-i images use cramfs and I have no plans
to change this at this point.
