We do. We are using the same toolkit for ours! ;-)

I plan to have a look at how have they done some things (Partition Druid,
autodetection of hardware...) to improve our boot disks in future
versions. I don't know enough about their disks yet to say if we could
simply use them or how difficult would it be, but I'm sure we have some
pretty good stuff in our boot disks that doesn't deserve to be wasted
without stronger reasons.
