Well, I tried doing just that, and it took about an hour on a Sun Sparc 10.
The tar file is 24 megs, but since it's filled with lots of annoying little
text files, it expands into about 50 megs.  (Good God, this totally seals
the fate of all future versions of Circle w.r.t. the possibility of saving
player data as ASCII files...)

Anyway, as a Public Service, I deleted all the player files and retarred
ROM -- only the source code, areas, and documentation.  It is available
from anonymous FTP at in the directory pub/ROM.  It's called
rom2-small.tar.gz.  I'll keep it there for about a week before I delete it.  

FTP it all you want for the next week, but after that, it's gone forever.. :)
