Some people complains about current [2016.04] (724M) size of our only
ISO image is greater than CD [700M]. Next month ISO will be about (743M).

(1) Keep things like now, and fix the Download page test "The image can
be burned to a CD" -> "The image can be burned to a DVD".
(2) Provide again single ISO per architecture (CD-friendly) and dual ISO
(DVD needed).
(3) Provide only single ISO per architecture (CD-friendly).
(4) Remove some tools from ISO.

Personally I am a bit neutrally here, I do not use CD or DVD for years,
but I do not like the option (4), many tools are here by user request
along time. My vote is for option (1) then (2).

Thanks for reading.
