that sounds great - we can safely omit huge packages such as cm-super
and full cb-greek from the TeX Live "CD version", and put it to only
to "DVD version".

and in case of CD version it is better to not include cm-super at all
than to include a cut-down version to avoid confusion with mixed
Type 1 and PK fonts.
