which is why you have a second DVD iso that has the extras - and not  
put them on the first.

Those who want both at install time simply download and install two  

Of course - using something jigdo would be even better - as you could  
have one jigdo image for just core, that creates just a core iso, and  
second jigdo that creates a single dvd with core and extras. (and  
jigdo's to create the CD's as well - all mirrors would need are the  
packages and the jigdo files - works quite nicely for Debian)
