Well... I see two things that make it seem worthwhile to me:

1) Folks are going to download that much anyway, just as seperate files.

2) This will make it dramatically easier for folks who want to either sell
NetBSD CDs or give them away or whatever. The WWW list has had at least a
couple requests for images, one of them today.

Your kind offer of a script that automates this stuff will no doubt be
pretty helpful if having ISO images becomes official policy. Thanks. :)
