no, the 7 MB (now 4 MB) size difference in in .zip format, uncompressed 
was 28 MB (now is 15.4)
i added all those metrics to put in perspective the reasoning for using 
duplicates, is easy to say "we keep a few duplicates in order to make 
the collection easy browsable" but when those "few" add 70% or 40% to 
the *download* size i think we should think again.
