Re: File Size Cleanup requests



4Suite appears to be about 50% test code; the test code could be removed
or moved into a -devel package.  Also, do we need to ship all 3
of .py, .pyo and .pyc files?

Last time I looked, Omni was badly bloated because there is lots of base
class code compiled into each of 450 or so shared libraries.  Could
probably cut 55 Mb down to a few Mb, by putting all the base classes
into separate .so files.
