Yup, that makes perfect sense.

Anyway, thanks to the link posted earlier I found out that even _I_ 
could make the iso. And just for fun, I tried with Nero under Windows 
(in addition to mkisofs in {Net|Free}BSD and Linux} and it works great.

Now I have my own iso image with the 1.6 source sets and some packages I 
always use.

Thanks guys & gals,
