Configurable persistent device names

Package: live-initramfs
Severity: wishlist


Currently live-initramfs will look for hard-coded partitions labeled
"live-rw"/"home-rw", and files called "live-sn*"/"home-sn*" for
persistent and snapshot partitions or files.

This will cause problem when trying to run/test two or more
live-initramfs based distros on the same machine. Different
debian-live based distros need different persistent devices
(partitions or files) and contents. Configurable persistent device
names is the solution.
