Ack, let's call it make-dls.

This is really nice, maybe we could simply add an option to include cdd-<name>
at building stage to give also to custom debian distro's projects an easy way
to produce their livecds.

I need to be commented out on cddt if it could be the right tool to build our
3 systems mentioned above.
Otherwise we should stick to create flavours for debootstrap I think.
Question: do we already have a tool that given a package name it downloads all
(including base deboostrap system) package it needs?
Also I need comments on 1-5 sub-tools mentioned in my previous post.
