rough estimate of amount of updates in 4 months

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any big iso would become faster outdated than a smaller one.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 
write... ;)

... i'm not discussing anything, i'm just giving input somebody may 
find helpful, somebody may care to see this point of view.
