I can certainly imagine aplications where this could be useful.
I *thought* about doing this (building my own kernel) but simply never
got to do it (priorities, priorities, ...).
Now, ideally, I would like to have a combination of ROOT_NFS +
wireless dongle module for the SheevaPlug.
But I guess that means building my own kernel anyway, to get the
module for the wireless chipset in there.
Well, just random ramblings and loose ideas. Like I said, never really
sat back to ponder about this more.
