I gladly hack on olpc-os-builder, and the answer is... no, I don't
think it'd be worthwhile. The toolchain used is different.

XO OSs are complex and tricky... and builds result in a preinstalled image.

XS OSs are an installer iso, something a ton simpler, and very
different. So olpc-xs-builder is just a fancy name for "the spot where
I keep build scripts".
