Yeah, but it's still not imperative to create the image in one go from mkfs.

We create our Linux (and even NT) workstations by just taking a dump of the
filesystem after installation, and dd'ing that onto the target. That would
work just as well for JFFS.

Either way - once we get it working on NAND flash, and having to map round 
bad blocks, we're going to have difficulties with just dumping an image on
to the flash anyway.
