Well, useful is a subjective term. :) On my 68k Macs, I like to have them
running xscreensaver, albeit sometimes at less than 1 FPS, just because I can.
(The most interesting conversations start up sometimes when people come by and
see that.) Requiring 32+ MiB "just to install/run" is a lot different than
requiring that "to be 'useful'".
