Re: package sizes

Actually I was totally wrong before.  The Size field gives the size of
the actual .deb file (in bytes).  The Installed-Size field gives the
amount of disk space required to install the package (in kbytes).  See
the dpkg Programmer's Manual 4.2.11 and 4.2.20 for more details.

Because the Installed-Size field was introduced with the new source
packaging scheme, only packages released in the last 3-4 months have
it.  Only a few of the packages in stable are newer than that.
