That is true.
But there is one issue with iso images sizes (core-dual.iso)

1) current (2010.05) official media is 659MB, so addding 
"1.7MB+compression" is not an issue.
2) current (today generated images 2010.07.01) is 702MB!. Size is over 
2MB of the allowed limit for a CD-ROM, adding more data become a problem++.

Anyway if big size is a problem for next iso, I think that dual images 
need to be generated with archiso2dual "-T split" instead of (like now) 
"-T basic"

(man-db -qc can be run inside the live environment, just take about 1 

CC: to arch-releng to notify about space issue for next snapshot images.
