OK. Then let's use grml-full / grml-medium / grml-small just as 
conceptual names for the following unnamed stacked system:

1. All console tools
2. Xorg + lightweight window manager + essential X tools like gparted
3. Heavy weight desktop system (Gnome/Kde) 
4. Occasionally used applications (KOffice/Latex)

of which next layer can be build on top of the previous one. Thanks to 
Debian live, if you can boot the smallest system, then you can boot 
stacked systems as well.
