That should be do-able using mkslim (read it first) from xs-livecd's git
repo, along with my idea to use a pre-configured "updates repo" on the


You would create an "overlay tree" in lets say /tmp/xsupdates/, this
will hold what files you want to add/change on the iso. Now just make a
tree for the files in /tmp/xsupdates/. Create a directory updates,
populate it with rpms and run createrepo against it. If you wish to
replace/add a file on the iso, just have them be in the same place in
the xsupdates directory, as it would be on the iso. eg: xsupdates/ks.cfg
xsupdates/isolinux/isolinux.cfg. Then call 

mkslim <path to iso> <output dir> /tmp/xsupdates

Remember to add the repo line to the kickstart file or add them as a
boot argument, for usb:
repo --name=updates --baseurl=file:///mnt/isodir/updates 
for cdrom:
repo --name=updates --baseurl=file:///mnt/stage2/updates 

The usb method is tested, while I have not tested the cdrom iso

No, I stopped when it bombed out, had to do my real work, must of been
at the point you got past with the patched pungi.py.
