I've not replied as this is not something I've looked into recently (see
/3/ below). But...

/0/ Assuming you're basing this on the released, "click" based system

/1/ If you start updating the image by installing s/w into you'll be "on
your own" as the "click" installation and update mechanism isn't
designed to support this.

/2/ When I last looked I wrote these notes:

/3/ I think the current kernel now supports LDX containers. If this is
true, it is probably a better approach than the chroot used in /2/.
