[erlang-questions] deriving boot scripts from a running system

I made a small addition to my setup [1] application, which allows you to 'save' a release based on a running system.

This is partly a logical consequence of the reload_app/1 function, which allows you to upgrade individual applications easily. For it to be complete, some more interaction with the release_handler would be needed (mainly, support for release_handler:make_permanent(), which I haven't tested yet).

A wiki page illustrating the function can be found here:

Comments and complementary ideas are welcome.
