...and it was quickly pointed out that the size was
insignificant/negligible in this case, wasn't it? If you guys are
concerned about file size on a live CD, and think that forking the
binaries is not expensive, then why not focus your size optimization on

Otherwise, I don't think the themes that weigh a few kilobytes would
need such attention when the second heaviest package in Ubuntu's default
