I didn't think the bloat was a big issue based on the numbers you reported. I'd still prefer to see us just move to a 64-bit resource on all systems.
I had also thought that bloat was not a big issue but Andrew thinks
otherwise. Here is the link to the thread.
In the latest patches, 64bit resources are default but one can force
these to be 32bit.
