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.
