Have you considered the idea that this might not be the right way to
go? An alternative is backup what's yours. Leave the rest to be
handled by install CDs. My backups fill half a CD. On a new machine
install Debian, then slap your stuff on top of it.
You're re-inventing the wheel.
Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
