It seems that live-boot is now "fixed", that is, it at least doesn't
break the distro fai package any longer. For this reason, I've just
deleted the 'live-initramfs' package from the FAI PPA; in fact, it has
caused problems for nfsroot creation.

I have a copy of live-initramfs_2.0.14-1%2Breally1.173.1-1ubuntu1.dsc in
case someone still needs it.
