How exactly is mc vital to fixing a broken X?  Your argument seems like 
complaining that emacs is not installed on the livecd.  While it is my 
favorite editor, I can get by just fine with pico or even vi if I must 
for rescue/recovery purposes.

At the end of the day if you prefer your rescue/recovery cd to have mc 
on it, then use one that has it.  You mention Knoppix, so go ahead and 
use that if you like it.  Remember: the Ubuntu live cd is primarily a 
demo/install disk rather than a rescue/recovery tool, like Knoppix is.
