I am not sure about having a full graphics environment, but it would
nice to have the functionality of the server installers rescue mode,
where the system try to create a system tree at /mnt/sysimage IIRC and
allows you to run `chroot /mnt/sysimage` to enter it.
I think more useful than a dedicated GUI rescue environment would be a
"Rescue" button (desktop icon or whatever is used for "Install to Hard
on the desktop environment on the image) on every GUI live image (e.g., on
the KDE Live) that does the above (within the live image's GUI, not as a
separate boot option).
I have (ab)used a standard GUI live image as a rescue image more often than
I have actually used the text-based rescue images, and getting the system
mounted was always the most painful part of it. Which is particularly sad
considering that the logic to auto-detect and mount the installed system
exists, but only on the rescue image.
