I've actually thought of competing for this reason, as I have sources 
that can produce a DVD-R disc for about $1.50 each (including case) and 
postage would only be an addional dollar.  Of course that does take some 
capital resources that I current have tied up in other projects.  But to 
do something like this for an American distro, it might be something 

And of course, I can obtain a copyright license for this material too :)
