What is cheaper, memory or CPU power. I think memory usage of 13Mb is
not worth compressing since memory prices just about hit rock bottom
and all you invest in cutting down a few percent of memory usage is going
to result in either more disk acces, more cpu usage and generally
will cost you your flexibility (i.e. OLC) If I look at an xterm under
linux it already consumes 1.5Mb memory, and that's only a terminal

Just my thoughts.
