    Making two crucial assumptions here:

    a) you are using a PC or similiar-sized gadget
    b) you are dealing with only one mapping table

    On a small device and/or in situations where many mapping tables are used
    (or inadvertantly many copies of the same one) attention to size can matter.

    If, for example, your application is cache-limited already, then taking
    even small amounts of extra memory would appear to be able to result in a
    bigger speed penalty than your simple calculation suggests.
