Having used Clearlinux a while, i had an admiration on how it separated user configurations from upstream. It made resets easier and easier to discover which modifications are currently in place from the base distro. If i am not mistaken, the BDFL was part of the team that created the distro. I am of the understanding that serpent will make clever use of hardlinks internally, will it be possible to have a clean /etc and all the links in /usr when packaging? I suspect this will require a lot of packaging effort for a return that might or might not be worth it for users. Does the serpent os architecture make this easier to implement?
