Indeed. I'm sure some people forget that a lot of people don't have
broadband - and quite a few people don't even have the luxury of 56K dialup.
Well if you are going to use that as a criteria to limit developement we
might as well pack up and go home right now. Doubling the binary will only
add about 75% to the size of the download, and if thats too much for dialup
users, tben download it less often, there are plenty of people with broadband
that can test the daily builds.
