Hmmm. The contrib stuff is fine to distribute, which is why we do

packages. Maybe popcon results. If so, we could drop them down by
simply removing contrib packages from the popcon list. Is it actually
a problem?

Exactly. It's not (yet) very useful for people burning DVDs, but for
people getting them pressed we _really_ want to make double-layer
