Well, based on the jigdo files on cdimage.d.o, i386, ia64, powerpc,
sparc and source are 7 CDs, and the rest are 6. Not all of them are full
CDs, either.

It'd probably make sense to carry:

	*.jigdo (all arches, all CDs -- ~300MB)
	i386 CD#1 (~600MB)
	i386 CD#2 (~600MB)
	alpha, arm, ia64, hppa, m68k, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, sparc CD#1
	i386 CD#3-CD#7 (~3GB)
	source CD#1-7 (~5GB)
	the rest (~40GB?)

...stopping when you run out of space. There's probably not a huge amount
of value in offering more than the jigdo stuff for CD's beyond number 1
(the people who have bandwidth to waste by mindlessly downloading 7 CD
images are better of wasting it by using apt-get; the people who have
some, but aren't wasting it mindlessly are better off using jigdo)
