Between 2 and 10, I don't think it matters much - but probably when going
from 15 to 65. If a factor of 5 would be an average case, that's something
else that's interesting to discuss. For .kkrieger, it feels more like a
factor of 100, but that's a very special case.

How large portion of the average game's downloaded file is pixel data? Could
a good image synth generate a big part of them? Is there a significant risk
of textures looking too much alike? Could it be worth it if your 100 MB game
comes down to 5 MB?
