I've no idea about persistency and will deeply look into that for
lenny+1 when live-initramfs will be splittet (by moving live-bottom/*
into the normal sysvinit userspace) (and thus I have to read and
understand all of it, finally). However, if someone can improve the
current situation wrt/ persistency, this and patches are more than welcome.

Ideally, these should go directly, or rather should be moved, to the
live-manual. Helping with documentation is also very appreciated.
