initrd explosion?



What's happened to the initrd image in rawhide?

The last version I checked was only 8+ MB

$ ls -l work3/FC/fedora/development/i386/os/isolinux/

Friday's version is now 76+!

$ ls /work3/FC/fedora/development/i386/os/isolinux/ -l

Everything else seems in line, it's just initrd that seems
a bit excessive.  n.b. this system runs on my big boxes, but fails
to even start on my 192MB ThinkPad :-(
