1) the right bash version of [ "$foo" == "" ] is [ -z "$foo" ], or that
is my opinion at least.  The rest of baselayout uses this.

2) So now we have '/newroot', '/mnt/cdrom' and possibly '/mnt/livecd'
for older livecd scripts, or '/var/lib/livecd' for future.  Basically,
can we really get this sorted out _now_ ?  I am _not_ going to add
20 tests.

3) I still think shutting lvm down is the safer way for uses that uses
lvm at install.  Anybody else want to comment on this? (Note I am not
saying to start it ...).

4) I say this for the last time - If you commit to baselayout, you go
through _me_.  If anybody took long to respond to patches or testing
there of, it was not me.  You do not know if your changes could have
any more implications than you might see/think of.  I do not see you
doing this with portage.  I do not see me removing all the broken
'ppc64' keywords (and breaking in on what you consider your domain)?
Questions?
