Entire projects (Newbie, FreeSBIE, PCBSD, Knoppix) are built around making
an existing, already-available operating system do this.  It does seem to
make a difference.

It's one of many things that would be good for the project.  Ideally, the
amount of time between CD install and getting to a useable environment
should be as little as possible.

I agree - I am looking forward to it.
