You can also rebuild the OS and OS overlay without overwriting the
home file system, which allows you to update without wasting space
or if you want you kernel updated.
I think Brian was going to try to have livemedia-creator as the
primary live system for F18. It might be good to hear from him
before commiting to something.
The overlay stuff should work the same with lmc created images.
Eventually I'd like to merge livecd-iso-to-disk's features into a cli
version of liveusb-creator if possible.
