  No problem.

  I suspect "good usage" is a little subjective.  But mostly I've
 been wanting to build a very very minimal rescue-system.  Currently
 that consists of an initrd image, a kernel, and nothing else.

  Although there is also the possibility of using nfs-root for this,
 which would be more flexible and remove some of the size/fiddling

  Having a compiler present isn't a deal-breaker, but given the
 root filesystem is writable it would be nice to be able to
 download & compile random things.

  Sure thing.

  I did look at pcc, and a couple of other minimal compilers, but 
 sadly none of them seem to be well suited for such an environment
 so there looks like there will need to be some hacking regardless
 of what I choose.
