I gave into my curiosity at work: with all the external dependencies
included, it would be around 1.3gb right now, which isn't so bad. 

I could restrict the full-source release to just the quarterly snapshot
releases (next one around April 1). Then the option is to either: a)
release two tarballs, one with the pre-fetched packages and one without;
or b) one tarball with all the pre-fetched packages and if you don't
want those, you can use the bzr repo.
