my argument is not about missing packages but outdatedness and the
speed of it. it is no argument in a discussion but a statement, that
any big iso would become faster outdated than a smaller one.

i'm not holding him from implementing anything. if it itches,
scratch :) that's the way things work here i heard some wise guy
... i'm not discussing anything, i'm just giving input somebody may
find helpful, somebody may care to see this point of view.
