Library file size limits seem reasonable if this is a concern or becomes
a problem.

I think it should be up to the module maintainer to decide if there is
less work in maintaining the 3rd party code in CVS or to field the bogus
bug reports and hand holding that inevitably follow not doing so. We
have some good mechanisms to manage this code (CVS) and the effective
distribution (update Status module) of it in D6 and i for one think this
is a great use of them.
