Agreed that these editing and development tools should be included. Except for something like emacs, which takes up a huge amount of space, these don't really add that much burden to the distribution. From my perspective, they are also good because high school students who are interested in development will have them right at hand.

Totally agreed Nigel, and that's what I've been doing so far. I use the last
version of Ichthux to build the next one, as Knoppix contains all the tools
to build Knoppix-remastered Live CDs.
