Very well, if you say so, ash may be all right. But busybox seems to
take this too far. You know what the root of all evil is... So why don't
we let OLPC group to actually build a system and take measurements?
It seems too early to decide on busybox. For crying out loud, it's
a system with GNOME. I'm sure 10 core systems can disappear in the
noise of that set of packages. :-)
