Per James's work [0], we can now install owncloud without the
recommends, reducing owncloud's install size (to around 70 MiB, if I've
mathed correctly).  However, it may still be time to increase the image
size to 4 GiB.  I believe that would still fit on the default DreamPlug
microSD card, of 4 GB.  Now seems like a fine time to upsize the image,
though I'm very wary of doing so much further.
