That's the thing, though -- it _IS_ growing by more than that because of
the ISOs; many of the mirrors already carry Extras so the packages
aren't really an increase there.  Every set of CDs has to contain the
kernel for example, which isn't exactly small :)

Download volume isn't really the main problem as much as backend storage
constraints.  Download volume is only really a concern when we've
decided "this is the release" and have to get however many gigs of bits
to the mirrors in a short period of time so we can release.
