I've wondered about doing that but never had a chance to test it.
Thanks for getting it working. emsecondstage removes itself once

If additions are needed in the various manpages, just file a wishlist
bug with the details.

Examples can be included in the manpages too, if you'd like.
Alternatively, a part of the Emdebian Rootfs wiki page.
