Err.. save as a compressed file.. sla.gz ?? You will need zlib support 
compiled in.

The new format will allow for defaults to not be in the file, and when the new 
text system comes in that should reduce things too.

I'm not of the "waste space/memory/cpu because its now available" thinking, 
however, when did a difference of 100k matter compared to a 33mb directory, 
on a N gigabyte drive ?
