Good point, looking at
and https://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/targets/ipq806x/generic/,
with the exception of the openwrt-ipq806x-vmlinux.elf image, all of
the images on there are under 10MB and most are under 6MB.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion,
butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance
accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders,
give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new
problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight
efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
