There is an advantage to having a smaller image in that it can fit on
a small size CD or maybe a smaller flash disk or something, and is
easier to download and manage, and of course that it will be much
longer before it bloats to be too big :-).

But yes it should be up to several hundred Mb probably.

I'll take a look and get back to you.

Would it be helpful of me to run a poll on debian-devel or even
debian-user to see what people's favourite toys are ?

One of mine would be gpg :-).
