I think you mentioned this on gentoo-dev but I'll bring it up here...

For these embedded systems it would be nice if we had a
baselayout-lite.  I'm not convinced every init script for these tiny
processors needs to source 300+ lines of bash functions to just
provide colors and [ ok ] symbols ;-) 
Not that I mind it on my desktop machine... I've got gobs of cycles to
spare.  But where embedded devices are concerned, I want it to come up
fast and provide me with just enough information to realize the code
started up properly...
