It is, see below.

I opened a report so that the default busybox
comes with a few more tools:


ext pancake, You should register your requests here
if you see useful missing tools.


~ $ /bin/busybox 
BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 3:1.1.3-3.osso17) multi-call binary

Usage: busybox [function] [arguments]...
   or: [function] [arguments]...

        BusyBox is a multi-call binary that combines many common Unix
        utilities into a single executable.  Most people will create a
        link to busybox for each function they wish to use and BusyBox
        will act like whatever it was invoked as!

Currently defined functions:
        [, [[, ash, awk, basename, busybox, cat, chgrp, chmod, chown,
chroot, chvt, clear, cmp, cp, cut, date, dd, df, dirname, dmesg, du,
echo, egrep, env, expr, false, fgrep, find, free, fuser, getty,
        grep, gunzip, gzip, head, hostname, id, ifconfig, ifdown, ifup,
insmod, kill, killall, last, ln, logger, login, ls, lsmod, mkdir,
mkfifo, mknod, mkswap, mktemp, modprobe, more, mount, mv, netstat,
        nslookup, pivot_root, printf, ps, pwd, readlink, realpath,
renice, reset, rm, rmdir, rmmod, route, run-parts, sed, seq, sh, sleep,
sort, stty, su, swapoff, swapon, sync, sysctl, tail, tar,
        tee, test, time, top, touch, tr, true, tty, umount, uname, uniq,
uptime, vi, wc, which, who, whoami, xargs, yes, zcat
