If every live image gets larger, that will also negatively affect the nice 
Multi Desktop Live DVDs the Ambassadors are now mass-producing. Those 
contain all our live CDs (all desktops in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, 
where the bitness is autodetected at boot, but can be manually overridden) 
on one DVD, which is a great thing to hand out at events.

We really shouldn't bloat our images just because we can.

Downloading debugging information (and complete debugging information!) on 
demand is really the best solution. Or use the retrace server if you'd 
rather have a web service do the work for you.
