It is not full-featured if it doesn't have support for hardlinks, security labels, extended attributes, etc. Please call it a specialized filesystem instead, that seems to be much more in line with the comments about pramfs use cases in this thread...

Maybe it already is, I didn't look. -- "One disk to rule them all, One disk to find them. One disk to bring them all and in the darkness grind them.
