You have never wasted the cds entirely with jigdo. You can use them for the 
source of the next download cycle. Or better yet, if you have the iso's on 
your hard drive you do it all quicker by mounting them through the loop 
device. I've found that it pays to use all images as source all templates 
because packages may be moved from one image to another to restrict the iso 
sizes etc.
