This could be the more important use case for providing a stripped-down 
packaging of PLT: people who want to run the PLT Web server for real 
server deployments.

Size matters, especially if you're paying for disk space to a 
managed-server hoster or cloud hoster.  But even if you're hosting your 
own servers with big disks, having to install all the GUI and docs on 
each server reduces credibility (unless PLT makes a case somewhere for 
having a "full development environment" on every deployed server).
