Well, you cannot expect anything to just fall into place if you drop
this on me right now, and say 'it have to be fixed right now'.  How
long have work for catalyst been going?  Why didn't you involve me
sooner if you _knew_ there would be baselayout changes?

I already stepped back a bit, but I do _not_ see why the livecd stuff
should be overhead for all users, if it will be like 1 out of a 1000
times actually for startups out there.  Is it _really_ that much to
ask catalyst to just install /sbin/livecd-functions.sh if not present
at the end of stage3 unpack?
