Yes, we thought about switching back to gzip instead of bzip2 (gzip
is much faster). This would also make the installation a bit faster.
But all the rpms are not only on the CDs, but the DVD as well, so
that would mean dropping packages from the DVD. Thus we decided
against it.

Hey, maybe this is a good question for the community: would it be
ok for you if we drop a couple of packages for faster installation?
