Yeah, I thought so... my mail was also meant as a prod for anyone who
wants to do it for woody.

We talked about this proposal a while ago. I agree with Phil in that
just one 100MB max credit-card sized CD should be enough.

IMHO the small one /would/ be useful for some people, but the large

adding yet another option to all the possibilities already listed on
the site?
