febootstrap is a tool for building supermin appliances.  These are
tiny appliances (similar to virtual machines), usually around 100KB in
size, which get fully instantiated on-the-fly in a fraction of a
second when you need to boot one of them.
Note that febootstrap in RHEL 6.3+ builds febootstrap (version 2.11)
and febootstrap3 (version 3.21).  This is for backwards
compatibility with RHEL 6.0, 6.1 and 6.2.
