Well, there's still another problem, namely that the machine that
generates CD images deliberately doesn't mirror universe or multiverse.
This is an insanely useful sanity check, as it means that we can never
ever accidentally release CD images containing unsupported packages, so
I'm not keen on changing that. Other people are of course welcome to
produce such DVD images themselves if they want; anyone with a full
mirror could do so.

Perhaps it would be productive to discuss what packages you need from
universe, and whether it would be possible to support those properly?
