I'm not really happy with this patch.

1) It's actual function seems extremely limited. Effectively it only moves 
the default selection one line down.
2) It does not really support multi-arch nor multi-desktop CD/DVDs.
3) It only works because I expect isolinux will use the last 'default' 
statement it encounters, but having two default statements in a config 
seems rather ugly to me.
4) It is indeed only a very partial fix.

What exactly is the use case this is trying to cover?
Unless it is very persuasive I'd be inclined to remove this altogether...

We've just implemented the recent changes for daily/weekly builds and 
everything seems to work. So I guess we could do a release. That would 
allow you to also update simple-cdd.

I expect there will be some cleanup and possibly minor changes after D-I 
RC2. Not sure if we'd need an additional release after that.
