I forgot to mention a few details.

- Each dictionary provided by a dictd server has only two files: the 
index (not compressed) and the dictionary data (can be compressed using 
gzip). That would address your concern about size and number of files.

- You can of course run a dictd server on your linux box and look up 
words from your device over your local wifi network.

- The DICT protocol is "plain text oriented" so it won't be possible to 
display pictures with that solution. On the other hand, it may be an 
advantage thanks to the reduced size if you decide to install the server 
on your device.
