Well in current rawhide there isn't much of a gain left except for 
tetex-doc.  It almost seems silly to be worry about dropping exim when 
the 3rd largest package in the system ( and 
eclipse-platform being larger), could at least be cut down in size a 
bit, it was only 30meg in fc2, and i doubt someone wrote 200 new pages 
of docs for it.  Its kinda a confusing layout but it looks like most 
documents in it are both in pdf and dvi, plus there is a bunch of html 
documents and make files.

52M  tetex-doc-3.0-2.i386.rpm
6.1M  xorg-x11-doc-6.8.2-1.i386.rpm
4.7M postgresql-docs-8.0.1-2.i386.rpm
3.3M exim-doc-4.44-1.i386.rpm
2.8M openswan-doc-2.3.0-4.i386.rpm
2.5M python-docs-2.4-4.i386.rpm
2.2M kernel-doc-2.6.10-1.1149_FC4.noarch.rpm
1.5M docbook-style-xsl-1.68.1-1.noarch.rpm
1.2M ruby-docs-1.8.2-4.i386.rpm
