We don't *yet*. The code is there (as mentioned in the DebConf BoF),
but I've not yet seen a consensus over exactly what people
want. Currently, I'm thinking an extra 2GB image would be useful. We
*do* already have a 4GB image (the first DVD image is deliberately
down-sized to 4GB) and CD#1 is close-ish to 1GB.
