When I said cross-platform, I meant the program that generates the
custom ISO, though it seems you have more of the "FAI" and "configure
IN Ubuntu" idea. In other words, a Windows user could download a
program that takes the desired specs and creates an ISO to their
liking so they can install it. However, I see your point, this should
be more about automated, custom, easy to deploy UBUNTU centric
