They occasionally get too large indeed. One of the offenders was the
latest upload which introduced a dependency to
-officebean which causes some 12 MB of oversizedness alone. Chris is
working on a new upload, which will also fix that.

I haven't investigated the reason for the remaining increase yet, I'll
do so soon.
