Is there anyway you can determine which modules are most popular - down loaded
the most or whatever?  I think it would make a lot of sense to have one main
disk and one additional disk.  This is  the same way that Slackware comes: 

The main disk that has all the essentials plus the more commonly installed

and the Contribs disk that has the more unusual stuff,

If the Sword package were to be installed that way, the locked modules and
more obscure translations & modules could be put on the second disk.

Of course the $64,000.00 question with this approach would be which
translations & modules would be considered "obscure."
