Yes, slax uses aufs, and we can port it directly, but let's call it 
something else, because active/deactive are just way to common terms for 
people to search for help. 

One capability of active/deactive I don't know if we can port in the 
first phase is that, if the compressed filesystem contains installed 
packages, the "active" script makes sure that the post-install code are 
executed for all the contained packages, and their libs are visible.
