they aren't crazy big,

- 1.1mb  (a couple of LANDSAT images)
- not actually used or installed (we downloaded ver 1.1 from
  the SourceForge repo in the last release)
- file now removed in trunk.
- Presumably we can use the osm_local PostGIS db to provide
  sample data for the next release instead of pre-rendered tiles.

 (can we drop this old version?)

Yes, I'd suggest to host any binary bigger than 2-5mb or that
will change a lot on the download server, see the README
here:  http://download.osgeo.org/livedvd/data/

artwork which is not release-specific should go here:

probably just because that directory already existed.. shrug

direct download or versioned checkout from original site would
be best.
