Mike and Council members,

It looks like we have two easily supported options now.

1) the initramfs option, and
2) the sep-usr option using busybox.

What I can do when new udev goes stable is put a warning in the udev
ebuild and maybe a news item that explains that, if you have /usr on a
separate partition, you must either:

1) follow the initramfs guide and start using an initramfs or
2) emerge busybox with the sep-usr use flag on and follow the
instructions you receive.

My personal opinion is that we should not mandate one option over the
other, and this is now the only question I feel needs to be clarified.

Thanks for your time,

William
