	Wow - that is quite some growth :-) for me I have 19Mb of files - the
vast majority of that .sdg files - which are the files containing the

SgaObject* GalleryTheme::ImplReadSgaObject( GalleryObject* pEntry )

	has the pieces there. Comparing vs. extra/source/gallery that contains
17Mb of 'stuff'. I imagine much of the problem comes from the large PNGs
of rather stylized images which would do much better as their original
SVG source (though we don't have that).

	I guess the easiest way to save a few MB there is to rip out the larger
sounds - that's 3Mb of stuff there, and I've ~never seen them used in
anger :-) perhaps leaving just a few of them.

	Luckily with the new gallery infrastructure it's ~trivial to submit a
patch for that see the list in extras/Gallery_sound.mk

	Patches most welcome; though of course - we'd need to check that
existing documents don't hard-code links to these paths [ it seems
likely sadly ] into the gallery.

	Thanks !
