No. squashfs is. squashfs-lzma is not. larch has a PKGBUILD to build
squashfs lzma - which i have considered for inclusion in extra.

Nope. The liveCD is just an arch system. If you want custom steps run,
I would recommend adding a daemon script to /etc/rc.d/<foo> on the
livecd and adding it to the DAEMONS array in rc.conf. Either that, or
use rc.local - the same steps you would take on your normal machine
