[Live-demo] libraries shouldn't be publicly visible on OSGeo-Live

I don't think we should be including libraries on the OSGeo-Live 
Overview disk (although we can include them in our repository and 
include in the resulting OSGeo list of documentation).

My reason is that we are targeting users, not programmers on the Live 
DVD, and adding projects will just water down and confuse uses.

(Programmers won't need the DVD as they will be more likely to download 
applications of interest from the internet).
