Yes - but perhaps this is to be fixed for 2.1-stable (once we have it),
not for 2.0-stable.  That's because we only have the "make iso.gz"
functionality in -current (which the next release will be based on), not
in 2.0-stable, and we're being very conservative at getting changes into
2.0-stable.  I don't think we should change that approach now; I think
that it is more productive for us to concentrate on getting a new
release out sooner rather than later.

Right now, our users who want 2.0-stable should install 2.0-release,
then upgrade to 2.0-stable.  Indeed, this is not perfect - more work to
do and potential extra hardware support issues with the older kernel in
