While I'm not sure where we'll end up, I do think others may put more
weight on some of the concerns.  For example, across the broader
world/users-of-debian-and-derivative packages, I suspect there are some
who care more about storage space.

As mentioned elswhere, we get regular requests to make emacs-nox even
smaller.  And my eln-cache is currently 40MB, which is storage space
we'd thought we might not have to duplicate across the emacs users on a
system in the common case (Of course I know the duplication rate would
vary depending on which users use which things, but unless the sets were
disjoint, there'd be duplication that didn't seem necessary.)

But again, in the end, we just wanted to present the broader case for
