I understand #debian-www irc channel is busy with a lot of things (and
besides which, I should have solicited feedback through a bug#) but I
did some initial work on this that I mentioned the other day there and
then did nothing more with because it did not yet stir anyone's interest:

Index: index.wml
RCS file: /cvs/webwml/webwml/english/CD/index.wml,v
retrieving revision 1.30
diff -r1.30 index.wml

I am also now in the thick of stuff I have to deal with at work, but
once I'm clear of that, I could develop it further (http-ftp/index.wml
needs to have a subpoint, maybe under the subpoint about netinst images,
mentioning live images).

Is this the way we want to go? Or does it deserve a whole new page under
CD/? My rationale for lumping it together with http-ftp is the files are
stored in the same place and the same concerns about bandwidth apply
(and therefore tips about how to download apply). So I didn't want
needless duplication of that.
