	Right - it would suck to have to download two of these :-)

	Sure - I appreciate it is big; on the other hand - it is all inclusive,
and we have a -lot- of low hanging fruit to shrink that size - in the
last days alone we've shrunk many megabytes from that in master (at
least); and I think we're on track for reducing the size of the
installer to the point that no-one really cares anymore. Perhaps we can
back-push some of that to libreoffice-3-3
