That may have been a bad idea.

Many of the system utilities (such as mount) on the tablet are provided
by busybox.  If you upgrade busybox to some other version that does not
have one of the utilities the tablet needs, you will have to reflash.

Also not a very good idea.  Sudo breaks when it cannot resolve the
hostname.  If you also changed the default hostname in /etc/hosts,
it should be harmless.

Ah, I see you were careful.  Disregard my comments about upgrading

Funny, I never thought I'd find myself agreeing with a statement
containing both "lambda" and "more readable" ;^)
