   I mean... really... does anyone out here *really* care about 1000 bytes 
   here or there? I made the 32 color version because Brian had a legitamite 
   concern about 256-color displays, but I don't think we should try and 
   squeeze it into the smallest file we can for just that reason.

   Of course, I could be wrong.

For people stuck on the wrong end of a 14.4K SLIP line, the effective
data delivery rate is probably on the order of 1K/sec, after serial
start/stop/parity bits and TCP overhead.  An extra seconds's delay can
be significant if it comes up at the wrong time.

Seriously, I think this is a little too little to be seriously worried
about, but with much larger images, I would take the problem more
