This is not a problem at all, "semi prop script" regards some tools that using
casper and debootstrap they produce the final ubuntu live cd, this could be
done by us without too much trouble.

This is not depending on casper and maybe if you check latest rc live cds from
ubuntu you will find similars speeds.
Knoppix always sort in a "magic" way their files before creating the
compressed image, to do that you have to simulate a boot and use access
timestamp as a sort parameter, so all files accessed at boot time will be
sequentially present in the resulting image.
