A Debian-based chroot for /opt/ltsp/i386 would likely be the easiest to 
deploy as the client OS.  It would be minimal additional work.

I suppose I'll make a i686 EL6 /opt/ltsp/i386 the standard, and you can 
optionally download a tarball containing the same thing but from Debian 
if you need to support old hardware.
