am i mistaken or isn't that image w/o modules?
thus, simply copying the uImage.bin will pretty soon send us into a  
situation of modules not loadable, wouldn't it?

how far apart are the formats of ipk and deb?
dpkg is at least able to things like -I and --contents with them, so  
couldn't they be installed by dpkg/apt or converted to deb (extension to  
alien if someone knows how)?
