It could be used that way, but you would have to wrap the file in a cpio
The real way to put this together is under development.
Note, you can't concatenate initrd, only initramfs. Actually, given an

access it by opening the initrd device (/dev/ram0) itself, but I doubt
this is something you really want to do.
