Fedora is now the combination of Core + Extras.  That's an enormous amount of 
packages.  Instead of shoving 2+ DVDs down everybody's throat for our 
installer, we've instead narrowed the amount of packages we put on the media.  
Instead of 'every package in core is on the media' we now have targetted 
selections of packages on the media, and the ability to enable a repo of all 
packages at install time to gain access to things not on the media.

Given that it hasn't been "there" for the previous Fedora 7 test releases, 
adding it now may cause ripple effects with things like the LiveCD size.  I'm 
discussing it with other releng folks right now.
