Robustness and the fact that "hold down this key during boot to go
back to a known-good* state" is a really nice feature. This does make
me think olpc-update has a lot to add. However
1) it's non-live-USB-specific (I was going to say XO-specific, but...)
2) it's going to require boot-time logic significantly more complex
than a distro's default
3) it's going to be useful only with run-time infrastructure (a server
to host the updates, etc.)
This might be a good place for for-profit organisations to get
involved for deployments that want to deliver updates and / or have a
more robust way to deliver Sugar.
* for all practical purposes
