I was wrong about recommends being included currently.

Well, that is included in the task as a non-key package, so is
downloaded if possible. (And should be included on the DVD, assuming all
of gnome fits on a DVD :)

We should probably do that. That's enough of gnome not to be laughable?
(network-manager-gnome seems to not be included in that, but then it's
recommended by the gnome-metapackage so would not be included from the
current gnome-desktop-enviromnent using task either, if installing w/o
a network, I think..)
Rough size numbers (probably 20 mb or more off in some direction):
available space on CD #1 for gnome 372 mb 392 mb
gnome-desktop-environment with recommends 543 mb 584 mb
gnome-desktop-environment no recommends 366 mb 394 mb
list 1+2 with recommends 411 mb 436 mb
list 1+2 no recommends 257 mb 279 mb
list 1 with recommends 307 mb 332 mb
list 1 no recommends 214 mb 236 mb
