That sounds useful.

Unfortunately we don't have any proper way to do generic images or OEM
installs at this point in time, everything we have now (live images,
cloud images) is basically very hacky. You might want to read my mails
over the years about this:


Personally I think that to do this properly, there would need to be
changes to dpkg, apt, debootstrap, debian-installer, debian-live,
debian-cloud, QA stuff and many of the packages with maintainer
