What about having the web-based interface generate a set of scripts that
could be used to pull down the packages (with wget or curl, and using
mirrormanager for the package base), create the administrivial files
(initrd, modules.cgz, etc.), and create the .iso (with mkisofs et al)?
That way all they'd need is tools that are available on any distro (I'm
sure we can toss rpm2cpio.sh in). Heck, they might even be able to do it
under cygwin.
