I like to see live CDs just use squashfs directly and not a squashed copy
of an ext3/4 image. However this will break using dd to copy the image
for installs which will slow things down. Further however, there is at least
some interest in having live CDs and ananconda share the same install method,
so this might be happening in any case.
