No, it's due to immense amounts of redundant data, (all the data is duplicated for *every* language, none of it is shared) and quite a bit of XML overhead. > Is it possible to build this (like we do for openoffice.org with it's > language packs) so that you only grab the locations you need?

Since it requires a net connection to get the weather information *anyway*, this would not be unreasonable. Still, as I pointed out before, lzma compressing the 76mb of data brings it down to 1.5mb. It's read-only data, there is simply no reason for it to be any bigger than that.
