Yes - there are a few guides that involve the "livecd-iso-to-xo"
script. One just runs that on an iso and it spits out a jffs2 image
suitable for copy-nand'ing on to the XO. Of course the
livecd-iso-to-disk can be used to make an SD card for booting off of
if one doesn't want to overwrite the NAND.

You haven't missed anything - I have my own definition of "well":
"working well [enough for the Libary]" means:
1) having a version of Sugar and activities such that patches will be
trivial to review and accept
2) having working wireless, power management, XO keys (most), dcon
3) having development tools like pylint and git pre-installed
4) sound and mesh networking not working
I'm not recommending it for deployments/pilots. But it's coming along
quite well for developer use.
