Nah, dead simple:) using cdrecord/mkisofs/xcdroast from woody (sources)

   mkdir /tmp/cd
   ncftp some-debian-mirror
         get debian/dists/potato/main/disks-i386/current/images-2.88/rescue.bin
             into /etc/cd/rescue.bin
   cp whatever /tmp/cd
   mkdir /tmp/cdboot.catalog

         set it up
         choose Create CD
                choose Master Track
                       choose master source
                              select /tmp/cd
                       choose boot options
                              enter rescue.bin and boot.catalog
                       choose create session/image
                              calculate size
                              build image
         and burn it
