Ubuntu is taking steps to ensure that their desktop still fits in
a single CD (that's the reason why the changelogs are shrinked in the
ubuntu packages now, some images are recompressed, etc.).
So there are possibilities, and we can tweak the tasks and the
dependencies in some cases.
But it's probably too late for squeeze and like most tasks touching lots
of packages, it will be difficult to find someone leading such a project.
