Like base+ubuntustudio-audio? It has been suggested and will not be
done. Doing a audio-only distro isn't what we set out to do and there
were many other projects doing it when we started. Most now throw much
more on their disks and even moved to DVDs.

But like I said, there are other issues out of our control that force us
to a single disk.

Yes. I'm not sure what it does also but I think we filed a bug on this
because a team member felt it was important. I'll let Luke chime in on
this one.
