Better for low space users maybe, but considering that the price of a 14GB
hard drive is around US$109, creating everything for the folks taht don't
want to upgrade or don';t have the cash to upgrade really is not the
responsibility of the list or Gerard.

You design everything for the largest common denominator and the largest are
those that CAN afford the disk space. Plus, since you are in a DEVELOPMENT
stage you WANT the -g in there for debuggin purposes. you can always go back
with strip and remove the debugging symbols.
