Personally, I think you need to concentrate on the schools you
mentioned who have to install without Internet.
For the rest of us, no matter how good you think the DVD is, there
will always be things that schools will install by themselves.
For me its much more important to have a properly working system than
it is to have a lot of apps. So multiple kernels and multiple GUI is
good.. Same with extra firmware, and anything else more technical than
simply aptitude installing.
However, I'll look at making a wiki page later. (As for other schools,
however, I don't know any, unless they read this list)

Tuxpaint stamps is great. If you need tuxpaint, you almost certainly
want the stamps also.
