Great! an infinite number of possible ways to burn cd images
incorrectly and nearly impossible for other people to troubleshoot!  I
take it you volunteer to close all those bugzilla bugs that will be
filed when people download the gnome component together with the emacs
component and burn them both to the same disk incorrectly with nero

I think there is also a system memory cost associated to doing it this
way in the installer.
If burning components to CD means anaconda will have to require
significantly more memory even in text mode.. to remember the
package/cdimage matrix is that much customization worth it?
