I think we've both vented on irc about this (/me = ScaredyCat) and I've been 
having a play about and managed to build my own images with my own 
applications added. I've added it to the wiki too.. If you could test my 
instructions I'd appreciate it. 

You need to do the preceeding bits on that page too...

No doubt it's another 'wrong way' but in the absence of any useful help we 
have to find our own solutions :)
