After a careful examination of the discs I now recommend the first four 
CDs and first DVD.

However, I have had an order, and from the US, for the complete DVD set.  
This person had good reasons for wanting the complete set.

There are parts of the world that depend on recycled hardware with CD 
drives and no DVD drive, and poor/expensive internet connections.  So I 
would say keep the complete sets, but give some guidance about the number 
of discs needed.
