Sorry I think your requirement is considered specialised to me. I figured that if 
one could provide a space of 35M, he would probably be able to provide double 
or triple the space, and therefore he could use gzip or bzip2.

Pardon my ignorance on initramrs. I have never used a initramfs before. As a first 
glance, wouldn't it be rather inconvenient to use initramfs, as it's data and path 
would have to be compiled into the kernel ?
