We should put as many packages as .zip on the CD as possible, but many packages 
need to be availabel in Live-CD mode. I presume WebPositive would be among 
those. :-)

For the same reasons that we did not include VLC on the last alpha, I believe 
we should also not include BeZillaBrowser alongside WebPositive.
