Well, perhaps it is time that we convince the folks in the community
that trying to save a few megabytes of disk space, at the expense
of CPU time (which equates to man-hours in this context), is a poor
trade-off.

Of course, both are so negligible, that one way or the other, it is
all the same. Much ado about nothing. :-)
