Don't forget about WDOSX's stubit (mirror). It compresses and adds its own DPMI host. But it can't be removed and doesn't mix well with CWSDPMI apps, so shelling out from one of those will cause a GPF ... but it's still better than nothing. (I think you can load HDPMI32 first, and then they will play well together.) UPX's LZMA compresses better, though. Long story short: keep backups of originals, and don't sweat the small stuff. :-D

EDIT: I've only rarely used 32lite (mirror) before, but it seems to be by the same guy (Jibz) that did the compression part of WDOSX's stubit.
