I think the big current issue is not "do we replace floppy installs
with CD installs" but rather "do we replace the way that CD installs
work". We have no iso image creator now, so it will make no difference
if CD installs switch from El Torrito.
We can then get rid of the limitations on the floppy installs (like
limiting them to two floppies instead of three or more) that are based
on trying to avoid breaking El Torrito for the CDs.
