Why? I've read the barrage of mails this triggered, and I see absolutely
no benefit. I can understand the desire to have a more minimal "minimal"
install package set, and the packages that would be in that set will
probably all sit on the first CD. But that doesn't translate into the
need to limit the size of the distribution. Convenience for those of us
(like me) that use a more extensive package set should not be compromised.
