Then they wouldn't be uci (compressed images). The "image" part is an ISO9660 filesystem (essentially a cdrom image), which by design is read-only.

I would suggest, though, that the current path seems to be working in a sense. That path, with some exceptions, seems to include gradually pulling out unnecessary applications and sometimes replacing them with smaller alternatives. The removal of mc was entirely unnoticed by most users. If firefox is left in its current version in DSL, eventually most users will opt for myDSL versions, and it can then be pulled from DSL base without people getting snippy.
Firefox will not be removed from DSL.
Look for an update to Firefox in the next version of DSL v4.3.
John has finished his size reduction work so that a newer version will be possible. I had to make some other cuts in order make it all fit in 50MB. I am still working on some changes to better search MyDSL extensions.
