Yeah, I've thought about this for a few days. The suggestion of having a "KDE Extras" CD is the best trade-off I've come up with.


The other issue would also be whether or not we run the risk of alienating
those users on dial up. Who have to download a lot of packages, just to
get their system how they want it.

Actually, the proposed idea would suit them, I'd think. Remember, the base distribution is functionally complete and smaller, and they can yum the few packages they prefer over the "core" ones. That's what I end up doing on a Debian system - install the base system, then replace exim with postfix (example of a preference I have).
