I can not edit the wiki page, so discussing here.

How about a hook that rebuilds kernel initramfs images? Something like:

Type = File
Operation = Install
Operation = Upgrade
Target = boot/vmlinuz-linux
Target = usr/lib/initcpio/*

Description = Updating Arch Linux initramfs image
When = PostTransaction
Exec = /usr/bin/mkinitcpio -p linux
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Best regards             my address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*    Chris            cc -ox -xc - && ./x    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
