Do we have to be byte strict here? For physical medium sizes, we had to
be, this 1 GB is more "we set it as we think it's a good idea". Or maybe
1 GB sticks (what's the real size one can use + overlay?) but it's not
as strict, as you could pick up bigger one.
And I'm aware of multi desktop medias - not sure 5 megs means a huge
difference there (and it still makes sense to have some limit +/-).
