On the other hand, there are still some machines that
only have CD-ROM drives (not DVD).  Maybe those could be
supported with a stripped-down version of the DVD, e.g.
by omitting some cool-but-not-important stuff (some script
could generate this automatically).
In the interest of not getting distracted by the size discussion, I 
suggest targetting a 1.35GB size, but not worrying really about any size 
constraints.  I could imagine that when the DVD is ready, some compression 
driver pops up in the kernel, to make it work on CDs as well :)
