What about developers with metered phone bills? If I tried to download all the
source and binaries from unstable it would take ages and cost me lots. I would
prefer the option to buy on CD.

Those working on other archs (i am a i386 man) probably feel the same way. I
mean, what if they hose their system, at least they have most of the packages
on CD.
