Not many daily images end up oversized. If it were a substantial
percentage of all images, you'd have a point. With the current state of
things, people can wait a day, or two at worst, or use the image from a
day or two before (I think jidgo is not an option with the live CDs, but
should be usable with the alternate CD; I'd be happy if someone could
confirm this). It's not realistic to expect all uploads to be concerted
to such an extent as to be able to meet a certain maximum size on a
daily basis.

I think it creates files that end with .OVERSIZED corresponding to the
image that ends up being oversized.
