Not sure how constructive this comment is, but...

My Linksys router running linux uses ipkg packages. I can set it up to
install to alternate destinations just be doing something like
"ipkg -d ram -i packagename" or "ipkg -d jffs2 -i packagename" where ram and
jffs2 are defined in some config file somewhere.

I could see defining destinations like root, mmc1, and mmc2 for my n800, but
of course we use apt/dpkg, so this function doesn't exist. Like I said, not
really constructive ;)
