I doubt that it's the encoding files themselves. Both Python 2 and Tcl 8.3
grew Unicode support, which increases the size of (the cores of) each very
considerably. Then there's the use of MSVC 6, which treats disk space and
RAM as dirt cheap.
I suppose one day I'll have to face the fact that those furriners who use
those silly characters are people, too <0.9 wink>, but I still mostly use
Python 1.5.2 for that reason (and speed).
