A vote for X-cdroast....
If this don't git me Idiot of the Month nothin' will.....
While this would be beyond my own abilities,I'd really like
to see a dsl of X-cdroast, though it may be just too huge.
I use it to build my dsl CDs in an odd way-
I use cdrecord to burn a stock standard dsl iso to cdr.

I shovel lots of other subdirectories (like /optional) and Skins
and configs into this working directory.
I use X-cdroast to master a new CD to my liking.
X-cdroast can make the whole master iso track bootable.
Then delete the master track.

Wastefull?- Perhaps! (one cd ? and 50-150 meg HD space)

If it's even possible!
I'd really like to be able to use XcdR under DSL.
