I agree with Nicu on this.  I think there's reason to justify something like
5-10 MB on a LiveCD to give a good intro to Fedora.  I did the cheese demo
and it
was actually pretty hefty, but most of the ones that Paul did were no more
than 5MB.  I suppose we'd be going right to the end of the CD and have to
remove *one* thing.
What if this was on the install DVD to start?  Maybe having Miro installed
in the default LiveCD with the rss from the fedora channel preloaded?
