Clumsy only because it requires two steps - one an addition to
config/chroot_local-includes and the second to edit the finished system
after boot up.

The second part does not make any sense perhaps I miss something here. Anyhow to each their own opion this topic but if you have a better way you could send a patch to do it the way you believe it should work and people can examine. For me I believe the config directory serves a clear purpose.  Also if you want to not use the features the config/ provides just do a basic lh_config and then stage out your build to suit your wants. This mailer may help:


 Some of these edits are not preserved after a shutdown
and reboot.

I am confused here, are you talking about persistence? Live systems in general do not save settings.
