Anything's possible the problem is that there are too many possibilities.  
For your part, can you help define what should happen:

  (a) What devices should be hunted for
  (b) Should they be plane devices;  FAT devices with a loopback
  (c) How to ensure that livecd and USB key version match before proceeding

If you can come up with a good flow-chart/task-list of points and order they
should be done in (and put it up on the wiki) then I expect somebody else
can help you take that and work from it.

Don't worry, you don't have to know how it works at the lowest level, but it
needs some more fleshing-out beyond ''plug a device in and it works''.  Try
to describe the steps involved.
