It would be nice if the DVD-1 iso image were just a bit smaller, so it would fit
onto a 4 GB USB flash drive.

I'm presonally interested in seeing this happen for PowerPC architecture,
but I'd even be happy if it only happened for the x86/amd64 architecure
if that's the best we can do in the Wheezy timeframe.
Ummm. We've been doing this for ages for amd64 and i386 so that
they'll work in isohybrid mode from USB. Have you tried to use one of
the current images?

I tried it with the PowerPC Wheezy Beta-1 DVD-1. Is that recent enough? It claims to be 4.4 GB, the same size as the DVD-2 from the same series.
