Responding to my own question...

I got some help from evand and alex_joni (thanks guys).  They gave me some 
leads that led me to the cdimage project.  I haven't actaully dug into the 
code here:  http://people.ubuntu.com/~cjwatson/bzr/cdimage/mainline/README 
but it looks like this is the piece of the puzzle i have been missing. 
cdimage seems to do some magic with germinate to generate the tasks that 
debian-cd uses to create the Ubuntu images.  I'm going to pursue that 
trail for now.  Let me know if I am making a bad assumption!

Ubuntu and Debian-CD

Hi! I'm working on a project with a non-profit called inveneo 
that delivers computing and networking to help remote and rural areas in 
the developing world.  One of our goals is to create a custom d-i 
installer ISO for a xubuntu based system, and we are wanting to use the 
same tools that ubuntu/xubuntu uses in order to achieve this.  It seems 
like debian-cd is the tool that creates the ISO, is that correct?  I was 
wondering if there are any custom debian-cd tasks that you use because the 
version of debian-cd that I checked out of bzr doesn't seem equipped to 
handle building fesity, gutsy, hardy, etc. Rather the tasks are all geared 
to the debian releases etch, sid, lenny, etc. 

I would really appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction 
on this.
