It would be nice to have the option of using a binary or source based 
distribution built from Debian sources.

Ideally, a live CD, could be used to build the entire base system from source
by simply specifying the source repository to be used.

The system could then be configured to allow source builds of all 
additional packages.

go ahead, build one, see live-helper.

Closing this bugreport, as there is no bug. For discussing ideas, you dont 
need to file bugs. For implementing them, neither. (Well, unless you reach 
the state of an ITP.)
