It does seem perverse, though, to make a 3 disk set, to have to put
the source on all of them. the README could say "this CD is intended to
be distributed alongside the main TeX Live CD/DVD, which contain the
full sources". this demo CD is a snapshot derived from the main CD, not
a product in its own right
