Competitions aside, there are times where space is a premium, whether it be from distributing an application on a DVD, bandwidth or data limits (even some first world countries are still on dial-up in places, or are otherwise monopolised by a single, bad-quality provider), the smaller capacity of solid-state hard drives (especially on some laptops) and can otherwise be a money saver sometimes.

I tend to think more size gains can be obtained from more aggressive 
smartlinking.
The smartlinking is sometimes disabled by the way code is written.

To give an example, pas2js has a switch to convert published to public sections. As a result, the published sections are suddenly reduced to what is actually used in code. This produces significant size gains.
