I'm not keen on the name Knoppix.  But we have to move all the nice
auto-detection stuff of Knoppix into this build system.  Moreover there
might be some help in preconfiguration of desktop etc, which is more
or less done in Knoppix (or Gnoppix for Gnome).  People might say that
some stuff in Knoppix might violate Debian policy.  But I see no direct
relevance of Debian policy for a derived LiveCD as long as the
preparation is done in a clean chroot ... and this violation is
necessary / makes sense.

Kind regards
