What I meant by the price is how much the price was reduced for the 
consumer.  Manufacturers taking away functionality and not passing on 
the savings isn't very interesting, but I suppose there's a point in 
volume where you could pay someone to re-write perl or java code in C or 
some close-to-the-metal language to save a few bytes of flash and RAM.
