thank you all for all the replies. 

There is a tool called grml-debootstrap that I have been using for a 
while and am quite used to it. I'm just too lazy to learn something new, 
especially it is a complected tool, and under active development. 

I understand that it would not be supported, but hope, after all, the 
last step, which builds an iso out of a chroot system, can be more open 
to other well built chroot systems. 

thank for all other comments as well, guess I've got more reading to
