Can you release a smaller subversion package?

The current subversion package (1.1.3 tar.bz2) is about 6MB while it could be
less than 3MB.

The package is so big because it includes some needed libraries (apr,
apr-utils, neon) and other files (the complete site in the www/ dir, the
compiled svnbook.{pdf, html} in the doc/book/book/ dir).

Can you please release a basic package along with this full-featured one?
It would contains the same files that are contained in the full package except
apr/, apr-util/, neon/, www/ and doc/book/.

A basic package would be just 3MB in size, cost nothing to you, and be a big
win for everybody with a limited bandwidth (read 56K).
A reduced source package would also save bandwidth (and space) for all the
distro that distribute SRPM packages.
