One time my child was sick I need to work from home for longer time, unfortunately I was in this time assigned to project required a IPS repository access.
My network a home is not enough stable to use IPS remote mirror, so I as workaround use this script to create:
Home No-Network needed OpenSolaris Live-CD IPS REPO full mirror
I think you can find this approach and script helpful in home Virtual Appliances prototyping.
In fact this an another example how composite image can be created, this time I will use IPS net based install from default OpenSolaris repository.

New IPS packaging system
New SUN IPS packaging with network based repositories simplify installation of third-party SW to OpenSolaris or Indiana, you don’t need any more to deal with Companion CD or manual packages + dependencies download, install. Great !
