Gremlin had patches to add a new make target that would generate flash
images instead of ISOs.  I think those were primarily intended for
installing systems from, and they were for larger flash devices (1 GB
being considered the minimum anyone would likely happen to have handy
anyway).  Frankly, I failed to find time to review and merge those
patches - perhaps we should revisit this topic on owl-dev soon.

As to producing smaller flash images intended for actual use (rather
than installing systems from), there has been no effort to automate this
so far, as far as I'm aware.

Thank you for indicating your interest in this.  Many things are done
(or not done) in response to demand (or lack thereof), so it is
important to have feature requests like yours.
