..I installed _everything_ until Lenny, and 
played around and reported mostly conflict 
bugs.  And, Sid provides a softer growth than 
the dist-upgrade disk usage shocks. ;o)

..most people will want "comfy space" to play

20GB, and for your next machine in say 5 years,
easily 50GB.

.. mount points for /var/www and var/log 
(22GB and 2.2GB), 1.6GB in var/tmp, 
1.3GB in /var/lib, 179MB in /var/cache and 
120MB in /var/mail, to name the big ones.
