Really Nice to hear that, and nice howto you created.

Maybe it could be time for Debian Live to to spot this feature, to have 
multiarch DVD or multiarch rescues at least :-)

One of the initial goals of this feature is to permit incremental builds of 
images, to have a squashfs for a base system and another one that give full 
Kde, so at bootime one can choose different target rootfs and at build time the 
base system could be used to build kde, gnome, rescue and other flavours in a 
incremental way.
