Hi guys,

Some important catalyst livecd-related changes:

All variables in spec files named "livecd-stage?/foo" have been
shortened to "livecd/foo".

livecd-stage2 now requires a "livecd/runscript" variable to be set. The
"run" part of the runscript now executes during livecd-stage2. The
genkernel interface (which used to be hard-coded into catalyst) is now
part of the runscript. This allows it to be tweaked as needed, or to be
extended to build other things that may be required besides kernels. The
"run" target of the runscript is no longer executed in the
"livecd-stage3" target.

The example livecd spec files (both amd64 and x86) as well as the
example runscript have been updated to reflect these changes.

I have also started updating the XML documentation on the catalyst
project page.
