  ubuntu-server install takes up too much space

Bug description:
  Installing a recent iso of ubuntu-server, I observed that a base
  install (no tasks selected) took up approximately 1G on amd64, and
  800M on i386.

  According to the recommendations on precise at https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/preparing-to-install.html
  1G should be plenty for all tasks selected, and 500M for no tasks selected.

  Either these minimums should be reevaluated and rasised, or we need to
  concerve some space somewhere.
