How much space do you think is it reasonable for us to expect to have
for the artwork?

One of the proposed wallpapers is 2MB in size... we'd need a widescreen
version as well, which might bring us to 4MB at a minimum. Then the
various splashes do take up space, depending, I'm not sure maybe 1-2 MB.
I'm not sure how much we've taken up in the past but it seems that
things are tighter than ever - do you think 6MB is a reasonable amount?
