To the extent that FDOM is a base system plus a select set of
packages, it should be possible to define a "task" package that would
consist of a bunch of dependencies on the desired set of packages.
Since you (David) also fixed some packages, if a separate script could
perform those fixes, then the "task-fdom" package followed by
downloading and executing the "fixup" script would presumably get you
to the same point.

Not a trivial task to do all of the above...

One thing missing is that you test with the versions you use; relying
on the current versions of packages from the repositories would likely
break some things.
