yes, it is for an embedded application.

I know it isn't ideal but i wanted a full server package manager and
it is a one time use thing.  I am building a wireless access point+web
server that will run phpBB and will be powered by a solar panel. I
have a pc engines alix board w/ a 4 gig cf card  - i know writes are
