neat idea for a challenge.

just a thought for the currently prevailing idea - a quick gzip shrinks the tiny mona's size by 100-ish. (i'm not a member, otherwise i'd post this there)

You can log into StackOverflow with any OpenID (LiveJournal, AIM, Yahoo account, Gmail account, etc). But I'd rather have code than just a suggestion; it's easy to think of an idea that sounds good on paper, but harder to actually implement it and get it to work for real world cases.
