Ok since CVS hasnt happened yet, and Extras isnt happening until after 
CVS.. maybe the FC3 development plan could change a bit. Mark everything 
in the core that is to be moved to Extras when the glorious day of CVS 
(or wahtever) occurs as deprecated, but ship it in FC3 as non-installed 
cd's. IE they are still there.. but make Cdrom 3/4 not part of the 
general install but in firstboot when other packages as asked to be 
installed. When Extras repository can be brought up and maintained 
(FC4/5 ?) then you can drop those cdroms and just focus on the core
