doesn't symlinking everything into "the proper debian places" necessitate loading much of the system (/etc /usr, etc) into the ramdisk? If so, it sort of defeats the purpose of installing everything to /opt.
.dsl extensions, as I understand it, run the mkwriteable script. While this isn't a bad thing persay, it does up the memory load as compared to truly self-contained extensions (.tar.gz, .ci) that run entirely from /opt.
Is there a way to symlink everything into place without running mkwriteable? if so, I'd love to know about it for a few of the extensions I'm working on.
