Can you reduce the application footprint?

Looking at how much disk space PlayOnMac occupies on my Mac (489MB, compared with a little over 100MB for Crossover), I would like to know if a future version could possibly be trimmed down by occupying less disk space? (by delving in the current package contents, it appears that trimming it down could be hard, but I'm not a programmer, so I don't know)

In addition, an easier to use interface (with less typos in the English version, but I know that you're French, so I understand) could come in handy. For example, instead of calling each environment (or bottle, as they call it at Crossover) a 'prefix', how about referring to that as a "virtual environment?" (That is, rather than creating a new 'prefix', you create a new 'virtual environment' instead?)

Edit: I understand that Wine calls each environment a prefix. I'm alright with that now,.

I'm trying to integrate X11 librairie into POL as crossover, but it's very hard to have a good result ...

Therefor, the current integration takes a lot of space and does not fully support opengl

new version : 1.2.2 without XQuartz, in order to improve compatibility but with openGL issues.
next episode : X11 ^^
