I don't see why we should unnecessarily increase the ISO size. LO is
in the repos, so why bother shipping it directly? If we decide to move
on to <2 GB now, then we'll decide for <4 GB some time later. It will
begin to grow from release to release, and at some time Xubuntu will
no longer be a low-resources distro, which is one reason why I'm using it.
