I think I noticed that somewhere during alpha 3 testing, mentioned it,
and the response was along the lines of "it's ubiquity, not much we can
do about it".

I think when I tested it the installer RAM requirement was closer to
320MB than 384MB though, are you sure a full 384MB is needed?

Since then there was discussion of making the "Alternate" text mode
installer UI be the default Lubuntu ISO, which makes sense to me.  Of
course, that needs us to be able to *create* an Alternate CD, which
needs Canonical to get the build system working for us... or for us to
do a lot of work to do it ourselves.  When I suggested I create a build
system here I was more or less told "oh, don't do that, it would be a
lot of work"... so I didn't, and now here we are with no build system!

I'm in a bit of a "wait and see" mode at the moment; if we really don't
get a working build system from Canonical by Alpha 3, I'll probably have
to make time and DIY something as a stopgap measure.  It's just that I
feel like the moment I actually do that, it will be eclipsed by the
"real" install setup finally working!!
