I haven't got the first thing to offer by way of a solution or insight, 
but this is a topic I have been interested in.  So maybe you can help ME 

When you say, "There are other options for a non-programmer like me to 
respin Lubuntu," what options were you thinking about?

I have seen references to Distroshare Ubuntu Imager 
( and 
Systemback ( as Remastersys 
alternatives, but I have not tested either of them. I'd be interested in 
anyone else's experience with them or other alternatives.
