Wasting a CD instead of a floppy, whereas the floppy is rewriteable.  Of
course there are CD-R/W's, but since you make release on DragonFly
itself and rewriteable support is still lacking in some areas...
That or you do a net install and just need two snapshot floppies (which
is way faster than downloading a full ISO).

Assuming you have a second machine which has all the needed stuff to
make this feasible.

That's something that's useful.  Perhaps a more standalone version of
the fixit.flp, more akin to a real bootdisk.

How crude floppies might be they are darn useful and way easier to redo
than burning CDs.  Unfortunately one might add.
