Package: vim
Version: 2:7.3.547-4
Severity: important
Tags: d-i patch


while trying to figure out which packages could benefit from switching
to xz, vim-runtime appeared. Looking at the packages on CD1, the sizes
for switching everyone to xz would be:

972K	vim_7.3.547-4_amd64.deb
824K	vim_7.3.547-4.1_amd64.deb
164K	vim-common_7.3.547-4_amd64.deb
160K	vim-common_7.3.547-4.1_amd64.deb
6.1M	vim-runtime_7.3.547-4_all.deb
4.4M	vim-runtime_7.3.547-4.1_all.deb
404K	vim-tiny_7.3.547-4_amd64.deb
348K	vim-tiny_7.3.547-4.1_amd64.deb

(vim-runtime is already bzip2-compressed, but xz is much better.)

Thanks for considering.
