How about multiple distributable package things - one with everything (big),
one without the docs, and the docs separately available - each kind?

The images can be shrunk; there's a way to add an additional step that
uses ghostview (surprise) which can read a PDF and reduce the image
sizes (at some cost in resolution).

Also- note that PDF process is reproducing images way too big - that's
something yet to be figured-out and fixed.
