Ok for the code, I can for sure add a entry menu, It should not be 

But i have a suggestion. Since the CuisBook recommends, as good 
practice, not to save the image
I would say it would be nice for the system to have a global variable like
"#saveImageOnQuit" set to true by default.

Then, when i user is experienced enough to have all the Git things set 
up he can just
toggle the value of the variable via script at image boot and have the 
system behave as recommended
by the book. Reference to that variable should be in the book in 
paragraph 9.5.1.

I can try to implement this myself if you guys think is a nice feature 
to have.
