I encountered the same problem when working on AskoziaPBX. Asterisk
has many modules and sounds which take up space being stored in and
run from memory. I added another read-only partition to the image
which stores these items directly on the CF media. Something like this
could be done for the "service" related binaries and libraries in
m0n0wall as well.
