Oh yeah, I stated that in the forum post. It can convert any standard Arch 
Linux installation into a "live" version. As stated on the forums, if the Arch 
Install ISO dropped ISO support, it could be used to make an Arch installation 
img with an easily modified and visible root. One could make an installation 
media with a btrfs root and leverage the snapshotting abilities.

It also supports encrypted root and has partial support for lvm partitions.
