    Remove mention of installing everything
    
    An estimate of the size of installing of "hundreds of megabytes" is wildly out
    of date.  Just remove mention of installing everything, since it is nearly
    always not a good idea.

    	* ov-ex-unix.xml: Remove unhelpful mention of and inaccurate size
    	estimate for installing everything.
    	* ov-ex-win.xml: Ditto.
