You can use apt-cache for this, you know? I am using it and it works out 
great. Granted the visible list of packages is not reduced (without debtags). 
But I didn't really understand yet why you'd want to subset the packages list 
down anyway. Just makes installing the next little utility not in your subset 
harder than a simple apt-get install.

Don't know if the install CD generation does have anything to do with the 
packages list or if uses other information like the maybe dpkg selections.
