Oh, and I never said you had to remerge baselayout - but come to think of it, you are right, it will have to be done so. But it will have to be done so anyhow. So I do propose that catalyst rather install livecd-functions.sh by itself, as it will: 1) Not need a remerge 2) Keep livecd-functions.sh seperate, so future fixes will not need a baselayout bump, but just an catalyst one.
