Of course! Now I can't believe I didn't think about jigdo first... probably
because I'm not very familiar with it.

Assuming that it allows to create custom isos then it's great for this

In fact alongside picking up custom packages we could create some
predefined (maybe based on the popularity) templates.

Anyone willing to work on it? Maybe some Alioth project?
I'm not DD yet so someone else would be forced to create such project.
But I would like to contribute in such addition to project.
