Any apache hackers among us?
What would be _realy_ cool is an apache module / cgi / ... to
build the iso on the fly, using for example jigdo as a backend
Or even better (for those running linux at least) - do it in
the VFS layer. That way other services like rsync would benefit
from it too.
Oh well, if only time was a bit more... stretchable:-)
