Only for the actual binaries
Authored by: llahsram on Aug 17, '05 12:44:08PM

Just to clarify: the only files that see an increase in size are the binaries inside the app bundle. Many of the files in a given app are images, .nib interface files, sounds, configuration, etc., and those won't increase.

The Safari bundle on my machine, for example, is 20 MB. But the actual binary in Safari.app/Contents/MacOS is only 1MB. If this were a Universal binary, this might go up to as much as 2MB -- but that's only a 5% increase (worst case) in the total application size.
