Sorry - no. I haven't tried yet. It's on the list of things to do this
weekend. (but read on for some optimistic news)

I had noticed that not much has happened on debian-live since a change
of people mid-year.

You could try using LiveMagic to build it instead of pulling from git...

Alternatively - I have a general purpose rescue USBKey based on a
minimal, lightly modified, Wheezy. I'm not sure when I'd get a chance to
document the build - but it was pretty simple.

How badly do you need a portable Wheezy and will a rescue version suit
your needs? (the partimage of the USBkey is 128MB)
