If you check the list of Depends: and Recommends: for
task-xfce-desktop, they're considered for adding into the media in the
order they're listed. At the moment we fill the Xfce amd64 CD to the
point where gstreamer1.0-plugins-base won't fit, and then roll
back. We're already missing obvious useful stuff after that, like
libreoffice. Just getting the task-xfce-desktop set onto the media
takes over 600MiB at the moment.
