This seems perfect to someone (me) who has expressed the desire of still
having at least a CD:

IMHO there should be a DE with the basic needs (music&pictures, office,
Internet life), I do not know how much that would take with Xfce.  Then,
one possibility would be to check what Grml (Bcc:ing Michael Prokop)
provides that d-i does not, I usually have a Grml CD for stuff that are
not on the netinst d-i.

Thx, bye,
