  why wouldn't this fit on a normal DVD?  if you wanted to create a
custom "development" spin, you could save piles of space by not
loading stuff like office suites, which have nothing to do with
development.  if someone subsequently wanted open office, they could
always install it themselves after the fact.  you could also leave out
sizable categories like audio and video.  i mean, are you suggesting
that a basic install loaded with dev goodies would necessarily suck up
way more than 4G?  that would surprise me.
