Firstly, that's the live CD, not the install CD. I was talking about the
install CD.

Secondly, just looking at the size won't necessarily help you; debian-cd
is designed to produce multiple-CD sets, and it will never produce a CD
image greater than the size limit; it'll just produce multiple CDs, but
only the first CD will actually get published to cdimage.ubuntu.com.
