Not everyone has the luxury of commanding full configuration of their
computers. Some have to install software at the user level, without
administrator priviledges to do that configuration, or in a hardened
virtual machine or a computer that is not really up to the task of
handling everything with compression. So, while space nowadays seems
"free", if small changes can tidy up a piece of sofware, why not
implement them?
