Bug#684891: live-build: add a config parameter to define the project name

Package: live-build
Version: 3.0~a57-1
Severity: wishlist

The isolinux/syslinux screen displays prominently the project name which
defaults ot "Debian GNU/Linux". It should be possible to change that
name without changing the live-build code. Unfortunately right now
the list of project names is hardcoded and one can only choose
between two:

        case "${LB_MODE}" in
                        _PROJECT="Progress Linux"

                        _PROJECT="Debian GNU/Linux"


BTW, in general the usage of LB_MODE in the code is a bad idea. You want
a configuration file with distro/vendor-specific values. That way it's easy
to duplicate a file for your own derivative and change only what's needed.
