the only thing that matters AFAICT is mkisofs.

nope.

i did find out potato CDs are built with an old version of debian cd
that uses mkhybrid, so potato CDs should now and always have been
bootable. 

sorry i don't know much more about it then you do, i just looked at
the debian-cd source and fixed what i can see is wrong with it. it
should work for building woody CDs in addition to potato. since it
wants to use mkisofs now you must use the one from woody or sid not
potato's.  do a current cvs checkout of debian-cd as well.
