The amount of disk it takes to carry a complete Debian copy is simply
going to be increasing.  We have to tradeoff dropping a mirror or two
against the costs of weakening the distribution by leaving out

maybe we can buy *them* a disk.  Disks are cheap!)

Yes, this has been a long time in coming and I'm glad that it has
