Absolutely.  That is why I don't really get why you insist on limiting 
yourself to 1.7 MiB of usable space when you could get > 650 MiB out of 
a CD-ROM, and access other ressource from the network.  And if a floppy 
is all you can get to boot the machine (doubtful), why can't you just 
extract required files from another machine, then do your floppy 
shuttling from there ?

Your argument is pretty convulated.  I suppose there are many advantages 
to the dpkg format over rpm, but making 1992-style system rescue 
operations easier is certainly not a very pertinent one.
