revised patching approach
use an active-passive root partition scheme to allow updating the entire OS as a single unit, instead of package by package. In this way the updates are quick, reliable and able to be easily rolled back. It is silly to distribute individual patches for such a small OS.
Voted because it would be nice to see this treated more in the view-point of an appliance.

Voted because I think it would be interesting to see something like this thought out and discussed.
