Hmm... maybe make paramName= a more meaning one, e.g., persistentTag or 
something? Actually, I was hoping to use boot param to give full names, 
not just tags, but that might be more than a quick fix.

I have other concerns, which relate to the following questions:

- when both persistent partitions and snapshot files exist, which one 
take the preference?
- live-snapshot creates different snapshot files each time. when more 
than one snapshot files exist, which one take the preference?

To put everything on the table, I wish another boot param to name swap 
files to use on boot up as well - I'll cover it in details in another 
request instead.
