Revisor can do this very easily, but it's a hidden feature (not exposed in
the GUI, barely documented, blabla)

It's called --reuse, which allows you to not rebuild the installer images,
but instead reuse existing installer images. You would point it at a
mounted DVD, configure a repository pointing to the DVD, and voila, you can
do anything you like with it.

This is what I use to create the Everything spins too; I just change the
package payload, but do not change the installer images.

Kind regards,
