Keep in mind the 16MB is not always 16MB. I would say 15MB to make sure it
will fit on all 16MB cards. We don't need a bunch of "But I have a 16MB
flash..." on the list. :-) (As you remember, I was one of those on a test
image you made)

The way I see it, you will only add 8MB to the RAM need. So this is not that
much a bump. Might even still fit in 64. But it could always start with a
4 meg bump. That would fit.

I want it all. :-)
