This may count as a specialized situation, but if you are particularly 
concerned about size, then there may be a case for distributing stacks. 
Stacks can be small (5-20K), but standalones are (I think) typically 
upwards of 1.75M   If you have many dial-up (or even GSM modem) connected 
users, that might be a case for distributing stacks.
