Sorry for the self-reply - never got a response to this part of the
original query, and I see we have another potential contributor
interested in this area - Wojtek Pilorz.  Have done some more work on
the mkdvdiso.sh script and can now make it work for CD ISO images, but
not yet from the OS unpacked tree - builds a DVD that boots, but is not
recognized as CentOS install media - I'm missing something about
the .diskinfo file.  Also added some sanity checks.
