Although the current script depends on live-initramfs, IMHO, the 
better approach is to spin out a common library into a separate package. 

- live-initramfs & initramfs-tools are only for building initrd. you 
don't need to include live-initramfs in your live system. 

- Yes, one can install live-initramfs in the live system, but the biggest 
problem for most live systems are the size limit. Install live-initramfs 
requires other irrelevant packages e.g., busybox, klibc-utils, libklibc, 
user-setup, etc.

- On-the-fly module inserting and removing is for the live system, not 
initrd. It functions fine without all above irrelevant packages.
