Agreed. I wasn't asking for it btw.

Nope, in fact it is quite small: 13/overview is 7397378 bytes compared
to my biggest one (5/overview is 71829706 bytes).

Because the overview code i run is removed in 2.3 i might be better off
with running 2.3 alltogether. But AFAIK there are two overview methods
in 2.3, correct ? How clear is it which one will win in the long run ?
And do you consider 2.3 stable enough for production ? Or should i stay
with 2.2.1-Release as 'we' advocate in ?
