not automatic either.  This may be the wave of the future, whether we like
it or not.  With 10 GB and climbing of free space on gmail even permanently
archiving all of the lists I belong to, my percent usage keeps dropping.
With terrabytes of local storage if that should fall away, at roughly
$100/TB.  With really fast home iternet.  I think the world no longer cares
to trim its storage so much.  I'll do it as long as it's in the guidelines
for the list -- I'm just saying.

Reminds me though, of when I was a backpacker and we'd sometimes talk about
trimming the margins from our maps to cut down on weight.

I expect so.  Fortunately, everything I need seems to be in the new one,
just in unexpected places under unexpected names.
