Well, maybe not completely fine. It would probably be pretty close
especially if X was included. So then perhaps a few CD's would be required.
Of course, it would be rather aggravating to get a NetBSD CD to find out you
have the wrong one, but I think there might be a solution. On each CD have
a few architectures completely, have the source, and then have for the
architechtures which are not on that CD the minimum utils you need to build
the entire source tree. We would still distribute multi-cd sets but you'd
really only need one CD for any architechture then.
