question about initramfs-tools

I'd like to run ubuntu on a 2 gig flash disk and I was wondering whether
it makes sense to use init's loop device options with a squashed ubuntu
root file system.

To get this to work all I need is an new init option so I can specify
the cow layer I want to union mount with my squashed root file system.

Would anyone else would find a cow layer option useful?
