I reformatted today and decided to go with OO 3.41, so I guess it's moot now for me. That's why I was trying to decide on one or the other the past few days... Just thought it was interesting to see the size difference. If they removed a good amount of obsolete code, you'd expect things to shrink some, so it's obvious they've added a lot more of their own to it. No way to know if it's better coding or worse coding or indifferent I guess...
