That is true ... we are working on something for that (either an
httpd-2.2 in centosplus or a patched version of httpd-2.0 with LFS
support in centosplus.  It does break some things either way (so I would
only use it on a mirror server and not on production boxes).  Neither of
these will probably be ready for the 4.3 release.

That is a nice option.  We still need to workout the path details for
where the DVDs will go (on FTP servers), so I think initially on 4.3 we
will just stick to DVD only via BitTorrent.
