The non-live CD versions start a whole lot of daemons that not many

installation for example. We should completely eradicate that problem by 
the next release. It is silly.

Yes. That would be good. It might be useful have a discussion around the 
roadmap and reasonable schedules for the new features for the live cd 
that people have been wanting. Installation to hard disk, gui for the 
derivates, easy rebranding etc. Look at merging pilgrim and pungi perhaps.
