I'd like to see patterns detailed as this.

However, 'barebones' might mean different things depending on the
purpose you aim at:

- a chroot environment; having a bash might be sufficient for 'barebones'
- a virtual image
- runlevel 1
- runlevel s

One might define patterns based on functionality provided by boot scripts
(resp. runlevels).
