That is a good important observation: memory consumption. We don't want 
our clients (be it thick pr thin) to appear slow.

There is a lot of diskless workstations out there having no more than 
600Mhz cpu with 192mb ram, they work OK, but they are no F1 cars. 
Adding another 26 MiB would not be good news for them.

Could we selectivly disable this feature? If my clients are low on ram, 
and have no cdromdrive.
