Yup, good point. We've just moved the regular builds to a new host
that should give us much reduced CD/DVD build times, and therefore
make it easier to add DL-DVDs as a build option. However, we'll
struggle to have the space to make full ISOs available for yet another
(admittedly minority) format so if we do start building them there
will probably only be jigdo files available.
