Re: futher adventures in initrd shrinking

Moving them out was easy:

The boot.iso has the same layout, so no problem there.  Bringing them
back in will be a little harder, but I think pretty straightforward once
all the method stuff is gone.

Incidentally, boot.iso will now boot in a VM with as little as 500 MB of
memory.  That's a good improvement.

I haven't heard any significant problems on this plan yet but maybe I
should give it a day or two.  It might be nice to get a rel-eng opinion
on adding all these extra files to the langs/ directory.  Obviously,
this is F-15 timeframe.
