If it was just Fedora Unity's expense that'd be one thing.  But it's
not.  Upstream anaconda is still going to have to deal with split media
bugs and code.  Compose tools are still going to have to handle split
media cases (createrepo being a notable one).  QA is still going to have
to test this install method or else be faced with scrambling to fix
stuff when Fedora Unity goes to make them.

I really don't mind making split media, if there is a real hard need for
it.  I wish that Fedora Unity would do the legwork to ensure there
really is a need for split CDs that isn't being met by our other
offerings before claiming that split CDs are a hard need.
