I really like the idea of "canned" server flavors!

Unique CD's per install (as stated in the blueprint), I think, might
get unwieldy, with perhaps dozens of new server CD's per architecture.
 This is where the hypothetical hosted, vm image builder discussed at
UDS might be nice.  Fill in a few form values, get a coffee, come back
and download your new server image.  Perhaps more scalable than unique
iso for every combination dreamable.
