The book PDFs usually run in the 3-10MB range. Individual chapters in FM
format can run up to 30MB or more. And as Rick said, we're talking about a
single FM file per chapter in a book, then generating a single PDF for the
book, not separate PDFs for each chapter.

(I wish we could reference images, but we've got an "interesting" hybrid
setup that also involves a content management system, and the unstructured
FM users have to embed the graphics.)
