the proble is not creating the multiple layers, but:

  * how to let the user define in a sane way which stuff should go to
    which layer.

  * supporting stacked squashfs in live-installer, otherwise the image
    can't be installed, and using aufs in d-i is probably not possible,

unless someone comes up with a smart idea for both of these fundamental
problems, live-build won't support it.
