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.

Let's have 3 system as above and give the choose to include other packages to 
the mix.

I am a 'np-guy' and all politics to reach the goal are fine. I go from top to 
bottom easely, so I'll watch casper more next days.

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.
