Actually, there is quite allot we can do now that we have restructured:

(note the figures below are very rough sizes, they include all svn 
folders and build files so don't reflect the true checkout size):

Whiteboard = 8 Mb
tools = 20Mb
plugins = 16Mb

Total size = 44Mb

Total Forrest directory = 103Mb (also including build files and svn files)

All of these could be moved out of trunk quite safely and would reduce 
the checkout size by around 40%.

Furthermore, as we move more stuff into plugins we can further reduce 
the size of core. But this needs some more work on the plugin 
installation process, e.g. I recently moved the PDF generation into a 
plugin but the libs are still in core since I haven't finished the 
plugin build process - see
