From what I heard that was also the reason why python (and Qt) are/were not 
optified, but apparently a choice will have to be made - speed or application 
space, but while speed is a 'should', application space is a 'must'. I wonder 
if some sort of optification could be done on the device itself, as in make 
it optional or a choice - this stuff I use often and I don't want it 
optified, while somehing else used rarely can be on /opt so it would not take 
up space on /. Not sure about the actual mechanism to do this, just thinking 
out loud.
