The busybox programs are stored in romfs, using main memory.

So every program which is not needed to mount the SD card should not be 
in romfs, it's a waste of memory.

I have not known that most non-busybox utilities in uCLinux are so bad. 
Even "ls" has no colors.... IMHO, the non-busybox programs should have 
more comfort and options as the busybox implementations?

We're back to the times when men were men 
and wrote their own device drivers.
