Would it be sane and possible to extend olpc-os-builder to build XS isos?

I ask because nearly every deployment that uses school servers
modifies them.  Extending olpc-os-builder would result in up front
developer effort, but would result in a reduction of learning for
deployment personal.

I am not asking you to do it.  Just wondering if it would sane and possible:)
