Wow! This is a great piece of work! I haven't tested it myself, but
staring at the package, it really does look complete (mkinitrd
script, mkswap script, hibernate recommendation).

For those testing with initrd's, can I ask people to test it without
putting the resume2= line on the kernel command-line? It shouldn't
be needed as the script detects your swap partition, but some people
have occasionally reported that it didn't work without the kernel
command-line option.

BTW Martin, the mkinitrd script is missing some >&2 's on the two
echo lines that make that comment (so was I :)

Also FWIW, I wrote the script under DebianInitrd on the wiki - I'm
willing to call it public domain "do what you want with it", unless
there are any reasons not to.
