They are kidding.  The mainline of GCC currently is at 331M; the SVK
mirror repo on my disk is at *12G*.

Tell them, we're actively working on reducing zips (the can have a
look at the build-improvements branch).  Furthermore, what
it contains is really necessary for building Axiom for many, common,
target configuration.  And, we cannot move the zips somewhere else.

1G is good for the moment.

Perhaps they think we are not serious?

They certainly will not object to the current 12G of GCC -- Google
invests lot of resources into GCC.
