1. Is the software linked below stable and production ready now, with no 
testing required?
2. How much space does it take up? (I'm not sure how much space we have 
left on the image. One of the techies might be able to answer this)
3. Are you prepared to add the packages yourself, and write any 
readme.html files or similar before Friday?

If so, then we might be able to get it on the disk. But as I don't have 
experience with these tools I'd be hesitant to include them (because of 
our short timeline) without hearing a strong chorus of support from 
existing packaging techies.
