we spell it 'Debian Live' or 'debian-live', i'm just pointing it out
since you're consistently writing it 'DebianLive!' :)

sure. first, live-helper needs to support it through --mode emdebian.
that way, you can do lh_config -m emdebian and all emdebian specific
defaults are preset.

that's pretty easy, going to gather all defaults i can find and will add
them tomorrow.

i don't think this is any problem, for our default *-desktop images, we
don't install packages by hand but relay on tasksel (or aptitude, if
choosen in the config).

do you treat tasks specially in emdebian? if not, do you want to specify
 own packageslists or ignore the debian lists completely?

well, live-helper uses debootstrap by default. live-magic not, but until
live-magic can call live-helper accordingly to build emdebian images,
probably cdebootstrap is fixed by then.
