I had come to that conclusion myself too. cat'ing will still be used for 
small files like config parms (just so you install Glibc easier with scripts) 
and the boot scripts have to be copy/pasted. Might not be consistent but i 
think in the end it's better. And right there is always the 
bootscripts.tar.bz2 file (which I should mention in the book at some point)
