I would just comment that I wrote livecd-iso-to-pxeboot for
a specific purpose -- virt-p2v -- where the size of the ISO
rarely exceeded around 100-200 MB, which is large for an initramfs,
but about an order of magnitude smaller than what you are trying.

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines. Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
