Ah, I didn't take the time to check into the bug reports on rdesktop but
yes, i agree there should be a current development upstream on packages.

Also, something else that was brought up in the irc channel by a user today
that i felt was a good idea is the inclusion of (atleast the option) the
more customizable installation that is available on the alternate install cd
within the desktop/live cd. Now I assume that would be specific to the
application used to do the installation from the livecd, but it would be a
nice feature if possible.
