Just putting the bits on the DVD isn't enough to be able to install from
it.  The metadata on the first disc has to encompass all of them, there
has to be some kind of reasonable way to opt-in to the fact that you've
got everything, package ordering could be ... interesting.  Also, the
fact that the metadata will have everything ends up meaning that the
memory requirements are higher due to "more bits".  Or how do you drop
the bits you no longer need.

It's just a few little things that are in high-impact areas so the
changes need to be made with a fair bit of care and testing.  And given
the schedule, I'm not that confident of being able to get them done.
