As a followup to a conversation I had with Alexander (asac) on IRC, i'd like
to request the addition of some packages to the headless image. This is to
make the images more useful out-of-the-box.

- ifplugd (dhcp networking)
- screen (multiple terminals over a serial console)
- vim (or any other more complete editor than the vi that ships with busybox)
- openssh (atleast server)

More useful tools to consider (but might be more insteresting only to kernel devs)
- lsusb
- latencytop
- input-utils
- iotop
