I hadn't considered pseudo-image. My understanding is that potato will
still remain as such, but it will be made up of symlinks to pool, so I
would expect speudo-image and debian-cd to work with potato (possibly
needing a little tweeking).
Again my understanding, woody and sid will be a file lists that will
extract the various packages from pool, and binary-all etc will not exist
as such. The problem I am facing right now is that hurd is in sid and is
accessed through woody. The future problem for debian-cd is very much my
present problem with the hurd CD.
