There's not really a good way right now to tie "build a livecd" into the
rawhide build process, much less "build a large set of livecds".  Unless
you want to make rawhide take far longer to build which seems like
something we don't want.  Plus, even then, it's a matter of human
analysis, not just having the data

The total package set size isn't interesting with a live image because
you then have the compression on top of that.  So 20 megs of additional
installed package size could end up only being 2 megs on the iso or it
could end up being 20.
