sprezzos 0.0.0-β drops, after great struggle

So, give me a minute to figure out all the infrastructure headaches involved in serious distribution (I'm clearly going to have to make Bugzilla and a wiki semi-public, or perhaps use those offered by GitHub), but for right now you can pummel my poor Linode VPS directly for the (large, ~400M) ISO.

This beta release is primarily meant to get machines running configured to pull updates from our APT repository. After spending the better part of this month on various SprezzOS-related codes and efforts (I hate the Debian Installer with the passion of ten thousand white suns), it was high time I shipped the damn thing. Thus you're getting only the barest of ZFS (LLNL ZoL) support; thus Growlight is not yet carving out partitions; thus the Infinality patchset to FreeType and FontConfig have even been dropped, despite their orgasmic beauty. They'll all return soon, once I'm confident in them, as will other surprises sure to rock the ass and balls of this great Nation.
Know for now that UEFI-based booting is definitely broken, and will be for at least a day or two longer. BIOS-based booting ought work fine whether you're looking for GPT or MBR, and the ISO ought boot from a USB drive if CDROM emulation is used (i.e., I'm not currently performing an isohybrid-like step). The graphical installer was working at one point, but I believe I broke it two nights ago, and I don't care about it enough right now to have looked back into it.
Everything's going to be very familiar if you're comfortable with the Debian Unstable installer.
Have fun, and happy hacking!
