Yes, please. I am thinking of trying to create an iso from my installed system 
(if I can). I seem to remember something in Ubuntu/Kubuntu that did that very 
thing. (Was it called mondo?) But now I can't find it. 

Once I've got my system running like I want - and I'm pretty much there now - 
I just want to keep it like that, and only upgrade. 

Wasn't there a way to configure the old Debian to do automatic "rolling 
upgrades"? - using "stable" instead of "jessie", for example, in the 
sources.list? Or am I just dreaming?
