I'm in favor of a solution that would include /home and other system
folders. Since I have no real understanding of the inner workings of
livecd-iso-to-disk, I don't know how hard that would be. I find it
usefull to keep some changes in /etc files but there are other files
too. Would this have to include a "blacklist" for stuff
like /tmp, /var/cache ?
The problem is there's no good way to define what is a "system file".
Not to mention that if you update a package, you may want to get its new
config files. Perhaps at some point, we'll be able to use something
other than dm-snapshot for our persistence, at which point, we'll have
some more options. But for now, it's what we've got
