For booting over a metered network connection, it's not the size of the
remote image that matters but how much of it is transferred.

Negative - it depends on your mechanism of transfer (in other words,
implementation). Only if you have block-based transfer [...]

Otherwise, everything counts. Like when yast2 loads the
6-file-comprising rescue image.

If somebody chooses to download the full image at every boot then either they
are not aware of the possibility of block-based transfer or the costs of the
network connection do not hurt enough to re-think the implementation.

Re-reading Alberto's messages, however, he seems to have sufficient local
storage for both py and pyc files. @Alberto: What specific practical problem
are you trying to solve by reducing the size of python modules?
