How about providing also lite iso as usually?
Not everybody wants precompiled X and downloading overhead.
I still think that mc is more welcome as iso CD is useful not only for install 
purposes but also to rescue broken box. (the recent init script break for 
example). I know that mc on iso was denied by sofar ("denied. not a priority. 
the iso is not for file manipulation, but for installing instead."), but 
still think it is good thing - better than X to have on CD. Extending CD use 
not only for install but for rescue purposes too would be nice thing. AFAIK 
lunar would be the first distro with mc on rescue CD.

have a nice day,
