Last time I needed the kernel source, it was on cd #2 or #3 (which I
didn't have), and so I had to download it. 

I don't think it matters whether it's on cd #2 as a binary, or on source
cd #1. If it could go on binary cd #1, that would of course be more useful
to everyone who prefers to rebuild the kernel.
