There is another, somewhat independent issue that has occurred to me.
What about how the components are split up?  The issues are somewhat
different for windows and mac than they are for linux.

At least on my system writer is 19 mb, impress is 11 mb, and calc is
24 mb, while the core is about 120 mb.  So the individual applications
are anywhere from about 10% to about 2% the size of the core.
Together the individual applications are about 85 mb.  So yes, they
are less than the core components, but I wouldn't say they are
insignificant.  You could cut out about 40% of the download size if
you just wanted some of the smaller components.

At the start of the process you would likely have to add those core 
120MB to the 19 for writer, the 11 for Impress and the 24 for Calc, 
meaning that you have 414 MB installed instead of just 174MB for 
the whole Suite. I know that today hard disks are cheap and have at 
least 300GB or on desktops 500 or much more likely 1TB but again 
there are still company and home PCs out there which aren't up to 
date and on which 414MB compared to 174MB are significant. This 
calculation is based on your informations I don't have Windows here 
and so I cannot verify if current LibO only is 174MB under Windows.
