[maemo-users] disk space running short on /

This is actually a problem on every linux handheld I have ever used.  It is
a problem on my GP2X.  It was a problem on my old Asus PDA.  It is a problem
on my N770.  It will be a problem on my Pandora when I get one.  I wish
someone had a great solution, but so far, nothing.  There is, afaik, no safe
consistent way to install software across multiple pieces of removable media
in a way that is centrally manageable.  That goes for any OS, on any
platform.  I can't even find a hypothetical description of such a system,
should I want to try to implement it.
