Sure, that's would be fine (even if I'm not sure if that's really useful
-- it might be better to provide simple tools enabling people to build
their own CDs with the software they care about, like what openSUSE is

What I'm saying is that we really don't need to name each of those CDs
differently, leading people to believe that Gebian, Kebian and Xebian
are different distributions, when only the set of packages installed by
default is changing.
