The easiest way for a debian-live-cd is, run cdbackup. 
There a lot of interesting projects based on debian, ex. gibraltar,
debian 4 Xbox, Lindows, all of them are debianbased. Impossible to
include all them into debian. I think its better to help those projects,
bring them closer to debian. Find out what is different compared to a
deb. Xfree is the same piece of software. I´m quit sure you can find
every software from knoppix inside debian.

Technically you boot a ( i can't understand why ) modified debian-base
system and start automatic hardware-configuration then your Desktop/
Firewall/ File-server/ Cluster. I do not understand differentiated to a
debian. A cool/colorful Desktop ?
