Keep up the good work!

I cannot help when it comes to long term planning and the discusions
about userspace versus kernel space. Expect that it is my impression
that moving stuff out from the kernel to initramfs gives distributions
much more flexibility.

As for the userspace part the klcc support should maybe have been
promoted a bit more? To show that it is relatively easy to build
external programs for link with klibc.
