I've just checked on this again. In fact main binary and main source added
together are about 50 MB too big to fit onto 3 CDs by the time you add
boot images onto the first two and simple documentation. Unfortunate,
but that's the way it is. Current sizes of the images I have:

virgo:/debian/local/slinkcd$ ls -alL ../images/
total 2978759

discs #2 and 4 are _very_ close to the limit for 74-min CD-R media.

Disc 4 currently contains 240 MB of main source; the best re-arrangement I
can see still leaves us short of space.
