well, those are some good counter arguments.
My main motivation was image size, as we often have core dual images that go well beyond 700MB.
Now we are a bit below 700MB, but depending on packaging changes the size sometimes jumps up and down.

But like I said in my previous mail, I don't care, Gerardo should do what he feels is best.
