I've always dream of having a web based custom Debian boot disk
configurator(not that I have the slightest idea how to do it).  A user
basically chooses the kernel options and a custom kernel is compiled
and a boot disk image is created and emailed to them(If the image is
not to big).  Of course this would need a super fast machine to keep up
with the load and be able to queue the jobs(Hey va.debian.org is idle
now right?).  Just a dream.
