 13.1.0 build 5 includes the initramfs both unzipped, and zipped (but
 unsigned) in runrd.zip. Similar story for the kernel.

 However, booting from the zip files isn't working - the kernel doesn't
 boot the initramfs.

 To test:
 false to require-signatures?
 " \boot" pn-buf place
 " int:" load-from-list

 The firmware does seem to find the initramfs ("RD found -"), but the
 kernel crashes early during boot.

 RAMDISK: gzip image found at block 0
 No filesystem could mount, tried: ...
 Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
