Agreed. We'd have to decide how best to name a combined CD so as not to 
cause confusion.

Well, that's really why I'm thinking of the combined CD at all. The total 
size of added packages for the lxde desktop is only ~10MB... See the diff 
in my other mail.

The major part of the CD is still taken by the general X.Org packages and 
things like Firefox and OpenOffice, which are all shared. So there's huge 

I have no strong objection to adding an extra CD though. It's less work 
than the combined CD.
