Part of the problem is that ../tasks/tasks-woody have been sorted
diabolically (or is it alphabolically) and end up on the first two CDs in
that order. What I am doing is to nominate the order which I want the
tasks to go onto the CDs, then build the list of packages from the list
and do _not_ sort them. It improves the first two CDs.
However, the first two CDs are involved and there is no way round this. I
built a CD set with only the base packages and tasks-woody and went well
into the second CD. This means that the minimum CD purchase is two discs
for a newbie.
