Live CD - Stacked file system support

Registered by Tollef Fog Heen on 2006-06-07

The scripts to make this go are pretty well tested on my laptop (though I would prefer to take another day or two to iron out possible gotchas before I put them in production), but I'm not waiting on the buildds having unionfs support in their kernels.
