If you make the rebuilding mechanism a priority so anyone can easily 
build a custom bootable iso (cd or dvd) or usb device, the version you 
start with or other use cases won't matter that much.

Are there any existing tools that can generically move a system back and 
forth from a running install (perhaps a virtual machine) to a usb device 
  with support for booting on different hardware, or to a bootable iso 
image?  Or, perhaps even more generic: is there a tool to move an 
existing installed system to different hardware?
