    I can probably get the disc down to ~450MB or so. Going beyond that 
will get a little hairy because of the interdependencies of the debian 
packages. dasBlog and nGallery may be a little while away as I am not 
aware of anyone actively porting them to mono. As these things get done, 
however, it'd be ridiculously easy to merge them in. I'd like to get the 
0.1 disc ready with whatever we have right now so that any bugs and/or 
annoyances that are found can be fixed.

It probably means that we need to get one of the db servers on the disc 
too. Which one is preferred? MySQL or PostgreSQL?

Also, is a CD->HDD install a priority or not?
