I forgot to add:
- the cd's look nice
- weren't there fancy boxes for the cd's as well last year? (not saying we need them again now, but they did look very nice :-)
- on one hand it's good that you don't put the 'word' 2009.08 on it, as these are modified versions, on the other hand it saddens me a bit our official images are still not "usable enough by default" for this kind of thing.
  next year official images will be dual-arch and whatnot so you don't need to modify them ;-)
