Where do I find this mdassemble?  A grep of Contents-i386.gz gives:
usr/bin/mdassembler                                         devel/monodoc-base

I doubt that is what you refer to.

mdassemble would be good, but having it linked to busybox would be better.  
Having dynamically linked binaries in the initramfs causes a lot of disk 
space to be used by libc.  Having two statically linked binaries means two 
copies of common libc code (EG printf).
