Again, I wasn't referring to the overhead of the overlay
_after_ updating. I was referring to the YUM-RPM operations
themselves that modify the overlay. ;)
And, again, to change the binaries in the squashfs, which is
what I was talking about. A lot of Google searches show a
number of people trying to do major, post-release updates
and running out of space in the persistent overlay area. Has it
increased from the prior maximum of 2GiB?

Yup - it's one of the very very NICE things with the live USB. You can
add software and even update your image. Yes, you're not touching the
original image, but it's just a block overlay for the change. It's very
quick and doesn't have much of an overhead.
