a patched squashfs depends on this (the unpatched one would use gzip)
"Squashfs is a highly compressed read-only filesystem for Linux."
I think it could replace the romfs, it would be slower but would free
some internal RAM (when C++ is fixed)

> > +lzo
openvpn depends on this
"OpenVPN is a full-featured SSL VPN solution which can accomodate a
wide range of configurations, including remote access, site-to-site
VPNs, WiFi security, and enterprise-scale remote access solutions with
load balancing, failover, and fine-grained access-controls"
looks overkill

siproxd depends on this
"Siproxd is a proxy/masquerading daemon for the SIP protocol."
being a proxy I wouldn't import it

need to look into it
I found this forum thread about backspace

And here are the contents of user/
note that is present in the svn sources tagged
uclinux_20051014 but neither in dslinux trunk nor in the newer

Looking at the names I know, I wouldn't import
asterisk, bind, dnsmasq2, freeradius, lilo, lpr, mysql, snort, squid,
udev and whetstone

Before I look into all the other dirs, is there something else to drop?

+asterisk/ (no)
+bind/ (no)
+conntrack/ (don't import)
+dnsmasq2/ (no)
+freeradius/ (no)
+lilo/ (no)
+lm_sensors/ (see above)
+lpr/ (no)
+mysql/ (no)
+openvpn/ (see above)
+siproxd/ (see above)
+snort/ (no)
+squashfs/ (see above)
+squid/ (no)
+whetstone/ (no)
