Let's assume the average hard disk size is around 320GB, which IMHO is a
low assumption considering that Tortoise clients are mostly used by
developers who usually have better equipped machines.

(3*300kb) / 320GB = 0.0000028125

If you run out of disk space because of this, we can talk about this
once that happens - but only if the average drive size hasn't increased
to the TB range by then.

The best collaboration that would actually work: make the Putty/Plink
devs finally implement a real non-console Plink client which can be used
by all Tortoise (and many, many other clients as well).
Then all those clients would not have to implement/patch Plink
themselves and ship it with their clients.
Now *that* would be something that really would be great. But the Putty
devs are pretty resistant to any suggestions or improvement wishes in
that direction...
