The package size is about 8 MB, which is about 6 MB smaller than the stock 3.5.10 package. I have not yet compared the package contents. Possibly unrelated whatsoever, but when I was tinkering with Lenny earlier this year I never got rpc.rwalld to work with the KDE write daemon to provide KDE popups from rwalld messages. I wonder whether no functionality is lost.
