Given the constraint of not being able to remove packages that were in
FC3 and I think this is the best approach for now.  It's going to either
be the main packages like OO.o, Gnome, KDE, etc. or many smaller one
since we need to shave 300mb.
At the very least at least package the 5th CD so that it's optional in
most scenarios.
