Those will be secondary features though… after all this tool is supposed to be for the less tech savvy people.
I agree that they are secondary features, and I wouldn"t expect them to be in the first version of Pi Card, if ever (as these features might just confuse the newbies).
Having said that, Marc hinted at heading up the creation of a Live CD. Kudos, Marc! Perhaps these secondary features might better belong on such a Live CD (as it"ll almost undoubtedly have the linux software needed there)? That is to say, a potential Live CD could possibly have a more "Deluxe" version of Pi Card, with these secondary features, intended for more advanced users.
After all, if a user is already savvy enough to know:
What a Live CD is
How to burn one
How to boot from it (having know-how to change the "boot order", and possibly disabling the UEFI in the BIOS of newer computers, see http://ozlabs.org/docs/uefi-secure-boot ... -linux.pdf
…then it stands to reason they're also the kind of user who probably wants these more advanced features (like a separate home partition, ssh-server enabled by default to run "headless", with a pre-set up username and password, etc.)
I'm not proposing a fork of Pi Card, but perhaps some sort of "Pi Card Plus," containing all the more advanced features, intended for a Live CD (and maybe also linux) only.
