I'd guess it will be reasonably close (other than the new package
versions), hopefully with just an extra CD image for the US-exportable
#1, but that remains to be seen.

The two CD#1's should have loads in common too.

I've not got room for two full sets either (unless I delete the 2.1
CDs), so I'll be replacing things once they look like they're better
than the test-cycle-1 attempts.

Anything that builds in a semi-valid state for each architecture
that's getting a 2.2 release, will get published.
