OK, I lied.  It looks like it might almost be able to do it, if it can use
the DVD as a repo (haven't actually fired it up yet) but it will wastefully
copy everything.  It might be possible to just use the DVD as if it were
the cache, if I figure out what that cache should look like.

ISTM that someone who understands pungi could make a little script and a
couple of config files that would take a DVD image and spit out CDs.  No
extra space would be needed on the mirrors, yet those who need CDs could
easily have them.  I don't think I can do it, but I could be wrong.  Pungi
might need a couple of changes.

Yes!  I know you're busy, but looking at that link won't take long at all.
Never mind that the article states that there is documentation there,
'cause there ain't.

That's a real good idea.  Hopefully the PungiDocs wiki pages will be filled
in with, well, documentation.
