Just out of interest, what is the rationale for pulling in ekiga? Drop
ekiga (and therefore SDL) and you're close to shaving off the 12-odd
MB you need to lose for the live cd. Not having something close to
debian popcon its difficult to guess the demand but you could always
do this for Alpha and see what fuss gets kicked up?

Or maybe I'm missing something obvious....
