Oh, OK, I assumed the physical CDs would use the exact same image we'll be 
distributing online (i.e. both with sources) and we'd simply have to find a 
way to make things fit.

Do we already have estimates what the sources will weigh altogether? If it 
isn't way beyond the 700 MB mark, we could get away with kicking some stuff 
off the image. Also, switching to 1 KB BFS block size could save some MB.
