Everything that was on the universal will be on the X-LiveCD with the exception
of stages. Instead, the installer can build a stage3 on-the-fly from the
packages on the LiveCD itself. While this is currently much slower than using a
stage3 tarball, we're working on speeding it up. And no, we won't put a stage3
tarball back on the LiveCD. There simply isn't the room. We had a hard enough
time fitting the portage snapshot on there while still keeping most (no KDE) of
the standard GRP set.
