OMFG.  What is your problem?

You're right, how could I have overlooked how completely obvious and
convenient and sensible the current situation is.  Clearly there's no
need to change anything, ever.

Look, if you'd just put a damned busybox or something on the CD, it
would actually be *useful* for something that it is *not useful* for
now, which is, *actually rescuing* when you don't have easy access to
the full distro archive?

If you would stop jousting with me to convince yourself that you're
right, it might sink in that maybe, just maybe, I have a point here?

Why do I bother.
