Only in the second step should size be considered.
The first step is to remove stuff that doesn't belong
to an install image regardless of size, such as
/var/cache, /var/lib/rpm, etc.

Also remember that size is an extrinsic property,
just like mass.  Lots of small stuff can be just as costly
as a few large items.
