- yacs is a fine name you should keep it.  

- debian-cd already exists in cvs.

- potato is not frozen, and has no useable boot disks, so it
  would be hard to test the images that yacs creates.

- yacs depends on 'as yet not available code', (apt) 
  it would make it kinda hard to package .. eh?

I actually have not made a run with yacs as my ftp machine is still 
on slink.  I will upgrade soon and try to give you better feedback.

I did get the apt from cvs to compile...thanks for the help!
