Aha!! That sounds wonderful :

"We'll need to do five basic tasks:

        1) Gather packages from repos into a directory tree
        2) Run anaconda tools (buildinstall) on said directory tree
        3) Split tree into CD iso size chunks
        4) Create isos of the chunks
        5) Sanity check the tree"
        
I'd suggest variable sized ISO chunks rather than CD specific, but I
understand it's pretty much a work in progress.

In the interim though, see any merit in an everything ISO?  Or is that
just too big for mirrors and networks to deal with?  

By the sounds of things there is an non-documented alternative of grab
mirror, stick on storage device and (somehow) make your own bootable,
installable image that functions like a DVD.

If anybody knows the "somehow" bit I'd love to know and would be happy
to document.
