This seems like a rather silly requirement for no reason.  Just like
one of those "hey lets only allow 10 documents open at once" features
from Lotus Notes.

Why are we limiting things again? If I put all our repos on up-to-date
DVD isos, how many people do you think will download them?  Probably
very very little.

Is there a reason to confine out size to an arbitrary number? What
about Bluray or HDDVD or flash drives... maybe we should confine the
size so it will fit on my 20GB iPod?
