Re: [Question] Integrating the debian installer in live-build - DVD, multi-arch, custom, etc.

DVDs are cheap. I'd suggest that it is in no way worth the time you'll
spend hacking things about to achieve this, when you could simply have
separate i386 and amd64 discs instead.

I speak with no authority as to live-build plans, but afaik there are
no plans at all to do anything in this area.
