Reiterating what I said at the conference; an ISO image sounds like overkill;
isn't it still better to let users select what they want instead of making
them download 600 megs of ISO and then making them have to burn it on
CD? Even if we want to provide a ball of everything this would still be
more efficient and easy to use as a giant zip file or tarball.

Contacting Amaze about this is definitely a good idea before we start having 
hundreds of megabytes available for download. This is actually what I
wanted to say but I'm glad Tom already thought of this issue.
