We really really want to do daily livecd spins of our Desktop variant
not at least because they're extremely useful for testing rawhide. One
upcoming livecd feature is the ability to PXE boot the livecd image,
(wget the .iso file) and run the system entirely from RAM. That is a
feature that the QA guys here at Red Hat is very interested in and it's
not very hard to do.

And I think all that this entails is just running the livecd build tools
pointing at the repositories that is the output of the daily compose.
I've got the livecd tools end of this covered, am going to submit it to
Extras real soon now. I'd be surprised if it would be hard to plug into
the daily compose.
