No. It would be a Very Useful Thing (TM), but no-one has integrated mini-cd
production into the system. Adding the option to debian-cd is presumably
the place to do it. It needs a 'mini-CD' size limit adding, and a list of
necessary packages, and presumably a 'netinstCD' option, then some script
jiggery-pokery. There may be some jiggery-pokery needed, but it doesn't
sound like it's actually very hard to do. Anyone enthused. 

Advice from those who made the unofficial CDs welcome.
