Hmm. What we download on startup:
* The links on the front page. These could conceivably be up to 1MB
  each, but they aren't. They are however a number of smaller files. DFI
  is 64kB now, and TFE is probably more than that.
* The various distribution servlet files. These are used for the "Spread
  Freenet" option. But they are only downloaded once unless something is
  really wrong - they should be cached in the "distrib" directory.
