I think it would be better to have at least ssh & gnupg on CD#1
(non-US) since they are the main non-US packages that will be
installed by people, so you could still get away with a single CD

That being the case, I'd go for your initial suggestion, rather than
this one, because this new approach means that non-US sets will always
require 3 CDs.

How large is the non-US chunk anyway?  What gets shifted of CD#1 by
the inclusion of the non-US chunk?

Cheers, Phil.
