There could be an alternative way to look at the problem: if we shoot at
random in the archive, larger packages should be easier to hit.

dak-roulette should have an option to weight hit probability according
to package size. That'll make it much faster to converge to fit into one
CD again, and provide a good incentive for people to spend time
optimizing their packages to make them appropriately inconspicuous.
