"Language-specific packages" means above all kde-i18n-*.
To include kde-i18n-* without the applications strikes me as backwards.
Hence I would suggest the reverse procedure.  Put the applications
on the first CD and the language specific packages on the second.

It certainly is possible, depending on what your priorities are.
But in the end, I think the individual user groups, wherever
they are, will have to set the priorities for themselves.

In my view, the main contribution of skolelinux is to offer a set
of well-configured servers out of the box.  The applications are
not usually configured in the same way -- merely downloaded and
used as is.  In short, the core of skolelinux is the servers,
and they certainly fit on one CD.
