(for the hypothetical and generic "I").

I don't want to re-brand. :-)  I want something quick and simple.  At
the moment, I'm required to re-brand in order to publish it to a web
site for someone else to download.  jeremy's quite useful comment
over here:
   http://direct2dell.com/one2one/archive/2007/07/16/21242.aspx#comments
is accurate, but I've got to remove and add a replacement system-logos
package, which is more work.  (As an aside, the CentOS folks don't
require you to change the software if you don't want to.  You do wind
up with their logo in a few places, but at least you didn't have to
spin the package before sharing your work with your friends.

I'd love the behavior to be runtime-driven rather than buildtime
driven - e.g. if there's a logo in a certain directory at runtime, use
that, else use something else or nothing...
