Boot Volumio on Raspberry Pi from USB drive

This question has been asked before but, does volumio have any plans to allow for booting Volumio on Raspberry Pi from a USB drive? Using a SD card for the system and an USB drive to store the Music files is painfully slow. Bypassing the SD card and going strictly to USB drive will significantly improve performance.

I’m not sure that will improve…

We launched alpha test build in this thread; which is also an invitation for collaboration.
