I was planning on them having package sets.  The new installer doesn't
support installing packages like sysinstall had but if I provide Gnome,
KDE, and perhaps a small set of other stuff it would be useful to people
with crummy network connectivity.  They could install the packages from
the DVD instead of needing to have everything downloaded.
