Size matters.
I have experienced various scripts exposed on the wiki,
and found some to be very strong size reducers.
But they are undocumented and using complex commands that no expert can trace,
and i have also experienced that they do also reduce the quality
in some very bad way sometimes.
I cant trust them.
