This looks perfect to me. A DVD for those who can take advantage,
a compressed CD which everyone *can* use, and a demo CD which
you can carry around for emergencies or fun. 

For the demo CD, I'd suggest it omit all the source, support, Books, etc
material, and really just have bin (win32, MacOSX, Linux i386)
and texmf on, with
a minimal setup system. ie installing would consist of just
dragging the thing to your hard disk.

I need to see if I can automatically generate the demo CD easily.

I think we should devote an hour to discussing all this at Bremen.
