I'm building a Debian-based distro called Xorcom Rapid:
http://xorcom.com/rapid.html (An Asterisk PBX server).

I considered using the CDD infrastructure, but I could never make it
work. The package debian-cd requires a complete local mirror and 
requires a complicated procedure. I ended up "patching" a netinst ISO
using a makefile I have. Not ideal, but it works.

Do you have to patch the kernel or just add modules? The latter is
relatively simple and generally requires no reboot.
