If we had definitions, I might agree with you that it might fill /usr.
The file is 2.4M though, and even if we got super-studious and doubled
its size, we'd be less than 5M. It's also not like a library where we
keep the old version around.
That said, this isn't a hill to die on. It bothered me how much we (tech
industry in general) will spend so much space on stupid crap but we have
spellcheckers that only carry a subset of words in use. I bitched about
it online and someone pointed out I could help do something about it.
So, (eventually) I did.
