mksysb for GNU/Linux

Has there been any traction on this? Having a mksysb-like utility for GNU/Linux would be a major coup. mksysb is a multi-functional shell script (Copyright IBM, of course) that utilizes roughly 50 different executables and other shell scripts. As discussed, the most basic use is to create a bootable image, preserve the LVM structure, and backup rootvg. Are all of these operations doable using native GNU/Linux utilities, say for Red Hat?
