size of various components in installer reported in e-mail
   At the recent Kepler developer meeting in Juneau, the question of how much
space components in the Kepler installer require came up. This email is a
summary of the alpha4 installer size requirements.

kepler-1.0.0alpha4-jre.exe --- 144,057 KB ; This is a compressed version that
includes the jre.

When uncompressed, the kepler install  requires 296 MB !
kepler/ptII4.0.1 --- 54.0 MB
  kepler/ptII4.0.1/ptolemy-doc.jar --- 53.5 MB
kepler/build/kepler.jar --- 13.1 MB
kepler/build/kepler-configs.jar --- 621 KB
kepler/docs --- 33.6MB
kepler/jre --- 39.7 MB   kepler/lib --- 145 MB
  kepler/lib/jar --- 30.5 MB
  kepler/lib/testdata --- 106 MB
  kepler/lib/testdata/garp --- 97.0 MB

We thus see that almost 100 MB of the installed version are due to the garp test
data. However, the GARP test data can be compressed quite effectively. (It
requires only about 7 MB in the compressed installer.) [7/144  ~ 5% of the
compressed package; 97/296  ~ 33% of uncompressed package.]

We can reduce the jar files used in actors by dynamic loading, but there is only
30.5 MB there. ptII documentation is ~53 MB in a jar and kepler docs is 33.6 MB.
We can reduce size by separate loading of this documentation.
