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 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
and packaged meta-config definitions.
