Great. This is the simplest solution. It just requires a single extra
dir containing half a dozen simlinks. No need to drop the slashpackage

This is an interesting subject that I would like to see in some web
page! (Hint, hint)

Note that I mount the hard-drive under /slash, and a battery of
symlinks allows to use this transparently (e.g. /usr is a symlink to
/slash/usr etc). In this way, the original (from the distribution)
setup remains whole, and I could boot the standard way if I wanted.
Making / ro requires messing with the original setup---maybe not the
greatest idea.
