Are we offering *less* functionality, or *different* functionality?
There's certainly a zero-sum game involved when you're discussing
what you can put on a given-size CD.

I'm +1 for dropping blow-by-blow changelogs out of that limited
footprint --- the people who care about those details probably care
about access to the source code too, and I don't see anyone insisting
that we ship full source on livecd.

I'm also +1 for the discipline of packing as much functionality as
possible onto limited space.  But detailed changelogs seem to me
to not qualify as critical functionality.
