However, because Setup downloads only those files that are necessary for your computer, this size can vary between 11 and 75 MB.

Some functions are threaded still further to allow lazy reverse DNS lookups (never do a traceroute -n again). The output from each query is hotlinked, so you can right click on an email address, IP address, hostname or internic tag to run another query on it. Appending the results of a query to the log window is a single button function.
