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.
