Universal binaries seem more in line with the Mac way of doing
things: the less you have to know what's under the hood, the better.
Space, of course, may be a concern, as Robert Bruner just pointed
out. In this specific case, the size of /usr/local/teTeX/bin/i386-
apple-darwin-current/ seems to be around 30 MB, and similarly for /
negligible compared with the ~ 560 MB of the whole TeX install at /
usr/local/teTeX/ on my setup (which includes CM-Super and additional
packages and fonts).
That said, it's true that the size of software has tended to inflate
recently, the most ridiculous example being iWork '06: about 1.1 GB
for Keynote and 900 MB for Pages, yielding about 2 GB in total. Utter
nonsense! Because of such clutter, there was only ~ 800 MB free
yesterday night on the 60 GB hard drive of my PowerBook G4 17" 1 GHz:
one can live with how slow a 1 GHz processor feels now, but free
space is absolutely necessary for work!
