Boot-floppies 3.0.19 question

Hello. I maintain the unofficial Debian woody netinst CD image. When I built 
new images against b-f 3.0.19 earlier this week, I was very surprised to see 
that the installer no longer supports downloading the base .debs from a 
Debian mirror, and now requires them on some sort of local media.

I find this very inconvenient, since it more than doubles the size of my CDs 
- 29mb without packages, and ~80 with.

Are there any plans to reintruduce this feature? I really liked the extra 
flexibility that was provided wrt installing the base system.

P.S. - Please CC on replies, I'm not subscribed.
