Yes, but really a lot more logical for the light CD. And changing it for 
other CD images too would mean they become inconsistent with netboot and 
hd-media, which I like even less at this point.

The file name for official images will probably be "xfce+lxde" or similar, 
not "light". Light (desktop environment) CD is for me more something to 
use to identify it in conversation.

Unrelated to my changes. Probably because things are moved around when a 
multi-arch is being assembled. Very minor issue. I may have a look after 
my patches are committed.

That's about the netboot images, right?
There already were other symlinks in use in the netboot setup. I don't 
really feel like worrying about this to be honest. Feel free to file a 
wishlist BR about it.

Yes, I'm aware of that. But that is also true for current multi-arch 
images. Could possibly be fixed (or at least reduced) by splitting out 
rescue, but see above for why I don't really want to do that now.
