As far as I could tell jigdo does not work with filesystems at all at the
moment, it reasembles the iso from chunks of data. As a frontend it would
need a separate tool for local live CD creation. But there are already some!
The ones I found are listed at: http://wiki.debian.net/index.cgi?LiveCD

I just read though this thread[1] at debian-devel about including knoppix
things in debian. Just like you also wrote the general problem of customizing
the configuration came up too. And for that I'd picture to use CFG[2]
and packaged meta-config definitions.
